Spa win by 5 runs - The Droitwich Standard

Spa win by 5 runs

Droitwich Editorial 15th May, 2014 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016   0

A CAPTAIN’S innings by Max Young provided Droitwich’s first century of the season and guided Spa to an unlikely five-run victory over Barnt Green in the Worcestershire Sunday League.

Young’s ton was the mainstay in Spa’s total of 208 in the 40-over clash at St Peter’s Fields but at one stage it looked to have been in vain with the visitors cruising to 150-1.

Droitwich rallied though, thanks to a three-wicket spell from left-arm spinner Jack Eaton, to pull off an impressive win.

Elsewhere the inclement weather proved to be the victor for most of the weekend. On Saturday, Droitwich travelled to Belbroughton where the game was abandoned without a ball being bowled after a fruitless wait for the players.
