Hadleigh 131 lost to

Worlington 192-8 by 61 runs

Worlington stopped the rot of four straight losses in the league with a convincing win away at Hadleigh on Saturday.

Having lost the toss, the Hadleigh skipper had no hesitation in inserting the visitors in to bat first on a damp track and in humid conditions.

Openers Ben Hyde and Richard Ford made a steady start, posting 66 before Ford (20) was adjudged LBW off the bowling of Tim Rix (1-22).

Kyle Tanner, who last season topped the division’s wicket chart, then removed Jimmy Watson for six to leave Worlington 92-2.

During this time, Hyde had completed his third half-century of the season and was looking comfortable before he was caught behind for a well made 63.

Wickets then started to tumble, but Sean Cooper (48no) remained resolute to help see his side post a competitive total.

After the break, Nathan Twiddy (1-26) removed Josh Davey early on, shortly followed by the first of two wickets for Sean Cooper (2-23) as Ben Parker was bowled for 15.

That was followed by a fine spell of bowling from Jimmy Watson, who ended with figures of 4-15 as the home side fell well short of their victory target.

n Worlington II, missing a host of regular players, fell to their fifth defeat of the season at the hands of Witham II.

Once again it was their batting that let them down after a decent effort with the ball restricted Witham to 194-7.

Terry Small finished with figures of 2-45 while there was a wicket apiece for Carl Manels, Paul Marston and Freddy Gallagher.

However, Worlington were then dismissed for just 120 with Matthew Wittish (34) and Marston (32) the top scorers.

n Worlington’s Sunday Academy recorded an easy win as they defeated Bardwell by 10 wickets.

Matt Peachey (4-22) and Liam Wright (3-24) helped dismiss the visitors for 106, before an unbeaten 74 from Dan Abbs helped them home.
