AFTER finally picking up their first win, relegation-threatened Tanworth-in-Arden will be hoping for further success tomorrow in their tough tie with second-placed Bretforton.

Despite being backed by a confidence boosting victory over high-fliers Kineton last week, the Solihull side still face a mammoth effort to retain their status in the Premier Division.

Winless Henley-in-Arden swapped places with the Tanworth Lane side after suffering a 24-run defeat at home to Stratford Brads.

They face Kineton tomorrow and will be hoping to inflict further misery on the team from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Earlswood take on Stratford Bards knowing that three more wins will guarantee them Premier Division cricket next summer.

In Division One, the wheels seem to have come off at Catherine-de-Barnes as the now fourth placed side suffered their fourth consecutive loss last week.

Catney slipped to defeat at the hands of basement boys Leamington III who had set an average total of 143.

A win at Bidford-on-Avon is essential as the Hampton Lane lads trail leaders Elmley Castle by 21 points.

Rampant Rowington continue to impress in the Second Division but harshly sit in second place behind Warwick.

An abandoned match two weeks ago gave the R's just five points and despite losing one less game than Warwick, and matching their victories, they still remain eight points adrift.

They will hoping to push on from their 17-run victory over Temple Grafton with another win at bottom-placed Ebrington tomorrow.

In the Fourth Division Dorridge & Hockley Heath comfortably saw off Stanway to reignite their promotion aspirations.

The win leaves them in the promotion hunt however unbeaten leaders Bretforton II remain clear favourites to take the title.

A win over Alcester & Ragley II tomorrow will do no harm to their chances as respective second and third placed sides, Bearley and Harvington go head to head.
