Old Hill CC bounced back to winning ways as they got the better of Bromsgrove after a rollercoaster afternoon.

Having been put into bat, openers Dan Cox (26) and Mike Hingley built an opening stand of 53 before being parted in the tenth over.

Nitesh Patel joined Hingley for a second wicket stand of 118 before getting out for 51 and despite little acceleration over the closing overs, Hingley remained unbeaten on 109 as Old Hill finished on 226-5.

Bromsgrove got off to a terrific start in their reply as they smashed 44 off the first five overs, for the loss of two wickets.

But the batsmen continued to tumble and the game looked finished as the visitors lurched to 104-8.

Though the final two pairs combined for 67 runs, Old Hill completed a super win by 55 runs.

The second XI had to settle for a winning draw at Leamington Spa after a superb batting recovery.

Batting first, Old Hill were soon struggling on 38-3 before Connor Smith (74), Jared Daniels (93), Hamza Ahmed (22) and Dan Jones (26 not out) took Old Hill’s score to a very competitive 282-6.

Although Jon Baig (3-41), Connor Smith (3-45 after his half century with the bat) and Captain Mo Javaid (2-43) gave Old Hill hope of victory, they were held up by Davidson (101) and Williams (72 not out) as the home side held out at 256-8.

The thirds secured an emphatic win at Old Elizabethans after some very tight and hostile bowling from Winston Lewis (3-43), Luke Fisher (3-31) and Dan Such (2-17) saw the home side bowled out for 170 in 29.3 overs.

The visitors replied with some solid batting with Steve Derham (78 not out) and Luke Fisher (59 not out) leading the charge and they completed a very good all round team performance as Old Hill won by eight wickets finishing on 171-2 in 33.2 overs.

But there was disappointment for the fourth XI who lost by 25 runs to Old Elizabethans.
