CATHERINE-de-Barnes continued to impress in Division One last week with a 114-run victory over league strugglers Moreton-in-Marsh.

Tomorrow sees them back on home territory when they come face-to-face with Norton Lindsey and they will be looking to further extend their 13-point lead at the top of the table.

Last weekend Catney romped to victory after setting an impressive target of 246.

Skipper James Mason with 70 was well supported by the aggressive duo of Carl Lewis (50) and Matt Hancox (31) as Catney put on an excellent 245 for the loss of nine wickets.

In reply the visitors could only find 131 with Mason also the star with the ball, picking up six wickets to continue his good start to the season.

In the Premier Division, Henley-in-Arden's tie with Tanworth-in-Arden was abandoned and both sides will be cursing their luck as each outfit are still seeking their first win of the campaign.

Tomorrow, Tanworth travel to Shipston-on-Stour while Henley head to Earlswood to face a relegation battle against their fellow strugglers.

Last week Earlswood came close to causing an upset away at second-placed Exhall & Wixford but suffered a narrow two-wicket loss.

The hosts hit 198-8 with Earls-wood's reply falling just 20 runs short.

In Division Two, Rowington will be hoping to reclaim top spot after surrendering their lead to Chipping Campden.

They take on a mid-table Shipstonon-Stour II side with the hope of making up for last week's 47-run loss to Warwick County Council.

Opting to bowl first Rowington restricted their hosts to 156-8 with Billy Sly (2-24), Scott Rogers (4-25), Leon Clarke (1-24) and Andy Shaw (1-41) taking the wickets.

However despite a solid 33 from Sly in response, Rowington fell short as they were dismissed for 109.

Meanwhile, in the Fourth Division, Dorridge & Hockley Heath hope to get out of the changing room this week when they visit high-flying Bearley. Last week their trip to Earlswood II was abandoned.
