No senior fixtures for Droitwich as poor weather wrecks havoc

Craig Gibbons 24th May, 2017

ALL five of Droitwich senior fixtures fell to the elements at the weekend although the Firsts were possibly thankful for the rain in their Worcestershire County League Division One clash at Stourport.

They were the only team to see any action but in the 10.3 overs possible, their batting shortcomings were once again exposed as Spa were reduced to 24-4.

Max Young, Ash Fearnall, Jordan Renau and Jez Hanson were all dismissed cheaply before the weather fortunately intervened and brought proceedings to a halt.

However, the bonus points earned by Pedmore in their defeat against Worcester saw Droitwich drop into the bottom two.

The Seconds lost top spot in the Division Two Second XI due to the abandonment of their home fixture against Oldswinford and Stourbridge Social.

Belbroughton, who they meet this weekend, have now opened up a 19-point lead after they escaped the weather to thrash Cookley.

No play was possible for the Thirds and Fourths and Droitwich’s debut in the over-45s competition on Sunday was also delayed due to a wet wicket at Redditch.

This weekend in addition to the Seconds’ top-of-the-table clash, the Firsts face a tough test at Bewdley and the Thirds and Fourths take on Old Hill.
