THE future looks bleak for Premier Division sides Henley-in-Arden and Tanworth-in-Arden as both sides have failed to record a single win so far this season.

THE future looks bleak for Premier Division sides Henley-in-Arden and Tanworth-in-Arden as both sides have failed to record a single win so far this season.

Tomorrow in the John Shepherd Cotswold Hills league Henley have a daunting trip to second-place Bretforton who have only lost two out ten games so far.

Last week they were trounced by league leaders Exhall & Wixford after been reduced for an abysmal 33.

Tanworth-in-Arden host mid-table Overbury and will be low on confidence after missing the chance to claim a win last week at Wellesbourne.

The hosts were dismissed for 160 which left Tanworth-in-Arden with half a chance but they could only find 115 runs in reply.

Earlswood pulled off a major shock by beating high-flying Kineton on their own patch last week and entertain Shipston-on-Stour tomorrow.

The hosts hammered 166-9 but Earlswood hit back with 114-3 to claim a seven-wicket victory.

In the First Division Catherine-de-Barnes suffered a second successive loss but managed to maintain their position at the top of the table on batting and bowling points scored.

Carl Lewis (37) and ever-green James Mason (40) were the only batsmen to show any resistance but their total of 118 was not enough as Alcester & Ragley claimed a one-wicket win.

Second Division leaders Rowington are preparing themselves for a mouth-watering away tie with second-placed Chipping

Campden.

Last week they managed to tighten their grip on the title with a six-wicket win away at Ashorne.

Andy Shaw (3-15) was the pick of the bowlers as the hosts were dismissed for 95.

Rowington comfortably reached their target, and lost only four wickets in the process with Eike Gilbert top-scoring on an unbeaten 34.

Dorridge & Hockley Heath's Fourth Division tie with Harvington was abandoned half way through as the rain continued to pour down at a wet Anchor Lane.

The visitors had posted a solid 251-7 but the match was ended with Harvington on 106-2.

They will be hoping to make up some ground tomorrow when they host Winchcombe II. ..SUPL:
