Solihull Blossomfield looking for late charge

DESPITE starting the season as one of the promotion favourites, Solihull Blossomfield currently sit mid-table in the Boundary Sports Warwickshire Premier Division.

DESPITE starting the season as one of the promotion favourites, Solihull Blossomfield currently sit mid-table in the Boundary Sports Warwickshire Premier Division.

At the Wardens tomorrow, a home win over bottom-placed North Warwickshire is essential if they are to make a late charge at the title.

Last weekend they were beaten at in-form Kings Heath as their 189-5 proved to be too little when the home side cruised to their target.

Division One high-fliers Offchurch Lapworth will be hoping for another win when they take on Bournville.

A win would continue to put pressure on second-placed rivals Highway.

The Coventry-based side are nervously looking over their shoulders after Lapworth's impressive win over Sheldon Marlborough last week.

However, in Division Two, Marston Green are edging closer to the relegation zone after a disappointing defeat to Rugby last week.

The previous basement boys were dismissed for 144 but Marston Green's poor response of 122 contributed to their defeat.

And it will be even harder for the North Solihull side tomorrow as they travel to unbeaten league leaders Civil Service.

In Division Three Castle Bromwich remain firmly in the title challenge after taking 16 points out of a tough encounter with league leaders Barby.

The hosts hit an impressive 220-6 and Barby shut up shop to hold onto a losing draw with a score of 125-6.

Bottom-placed Griff & Coton visit North Solihull tomorrow.

With the top two facing each other, points are guaranteed to be dropped. Therefore a home win is even more important at Water Orton Road.

Fellow promotion hopefuls Hampton & Solihull travel to lowly Bulkington as they look to make amends for a horror show at Pak Shaheen.

Mike Palmer's men were beaten by three wickets after recording a disappointing 138-7.

Solihull Municipal retained their lead at the top of Division Five despite only managing a winning draw over Collycroft.

They will be expecting a win tomorrow when they host Bridge Trust.
