Solihull Blossomfield go close to bringing dour run to an end at nuns

Warwickshire League

Warwickshire League

DESPITE a recent dip in form, Solihull Blossomfield will be hoping to record a win over lowly Atherstone Town in the Boundary Sports Warwickshire league.

They host the strugglers at The Wardens tomorrow knowing that the North Warwickshire side have only picked up one outright win so far this season.

Blossomfield's poor run continued last week when they suffered their fifth consecutive loss in an agonising five-run defeat at Nuneaton.

The hosts were dismissed for 143 but Blossomfield could only find 138 in reply.

Offchurch Lapworth face a tricky home tie with Pickwick P&M but they know a win will move them over their third-placed rivals.

Last week they were celebrating a resounding win in Division One after comfortably seeing off mid-table rivals Wishaw.

In Division Two Marston Green line up against Four Oaks Saints as they look to move away from the dreaded drop-zone.

Last week they slipped closer to the bottom two places after they were easily beaten by second-placed Walsall YMF.

The high-fliers started well, hitting 212-9 and in response the North Solihull side were dismissed for just 130.

All three local Division Three sides will be hoping to record positive results after last week's victories. However, one team will be left disappointed as two of them face each other as Knowle & Dorridge take on Castle Bromwich.

Last week K&D defeated second-placed Barby and as Castle Bromwich saw off top of the table Corley, they now sit just nine points off the summit.

Hampton & Solihull will be hoping to move up the league and take advantage of dropped points up above when they host basement boys Griff & Coton.

The Nuneaton-based side have only won once this season and H&S will be full of confidence after last week's trip to Elford earned the faltering side 24 points to put them back into contention at the top.

Mike Palmer (73) and Piers Roberts (74) yet again guided H&S to success.

Sitting pretty in Division Four, Knowle Village travel to Erdington Court in the hope of reducing the deficit at the top.

They consolidated second place last week after claiming a share of the points in the top-of-the-table clash at home to leaders Weoley Hill.

The visitors were bowled out in their final over for 220 with Dan Bates(3-14) impressing for Knowle.

After losing both openers early on they had to settle for a losing draw after reaching 167-9.

In Division Five Solihull Municipal remain top of the table despite a tie with Stockingford.

Tomorrow they entertain Coventry Uni. ..SUPL:
