FALTERING Solihull Blossomfield face a testing Bank Holiday weekend as they travel to high-flying Kenilworth then host second-placed Fillongley.

Two wins could leave them with an outside chance of gaining promotion back to the Birmingham League but those hopes were all but ended when they lost at home to fellow contenders Moseley Ashfield.

The hosts recorded 220-8 with Arfan Khan (5-88) the pick of the bowlers. In reply Moseley reached their target thanks to a solid 69 from Zaheer Suleman.

In Division One, Offchurch Lapworth remain hopeful of securing promotion thanks to a winning draw at home to Rowland United.

Tomorrow they visit Highway then entertain mid-table Bronze on Monday.

Marston Green remain in the Division Two relegation zone after a losing draw at high-flying Streetly.

But Division Three is still wide open with both Knowle & Dorridge and Castle Bromwich still believing they can break into the top two.

Pak Shaheen entertained Castle Browmich and smashed 161-9 before dismissing their opponents for 150. They hope to make amends with victory over Bulkington tomorrow.

At Marsh Lane, Hampton & Solihull and K&D played out an exciting draw before rain halted play.

Matt Williamson (85) helped K&D put on a challenging 208 for 7 from their 50 overs.

In reply H&S started well with Palmer (36) and Piers Roberts (25) opening strongly. Dan Adams chipped in with 17 with H&S left on 118 for 4 with 13.3 overs remaining when the rain ended play.

K&D must beat Pak Shaheen if they are to continue pressing the top two and H&S batlle out a mid-table contest at Ward End Unity.

Knowle Village retained second spot in Division Four after a four-wicket win over Five Ways Old Eds.

Dave Potter's unbeaten 83 was the highlight for Five Ways as they recorded 160-9.

But Village were too strong and Anthony Kilroy's 73 not out guided them to success.

Solihull Municipal host Newbold in a top-of-the-table clash in Division Five.
