Rowington promotion success

ROWINGTON failed in their late attempt to clinch the Cotswold Hills Second Division title but were happy enough to settle for promotion.

ROWINGTON failed in their late attempt to clinch the Cotswold Hills Second Division title but were happy enough to settle for promotion.

A win over Shipston-on-Stour was essential if the R's were to have any chance of stealing top spot from Warwick.

And they stuck to the task, beating the mid-table side by 39 runs. But their hard work was undone as Warwick also won to leave them top of the pile.

Meeting the R's next season will be Tanworth-in-Arden who finished rock bottom of the Premier Division with just one win to their name.

Shipston's first team beat them by six wickets after Tanworth ended on 117-8.

Going down with them is Henley-in-Arden although they did finish the season on a high with a four-wicket success at home to neighbours Earlswood.

The visitors hit 156-9 but Henley produced an impressive response, reaching 157-6.

Catherine-de-Barnes failed to catch the top two as they slipped to a 87-run defeat against fellow high-fliers Norton Lindsey. The visitors hit 193-4 but Catney were dismissed for 106.

Meanwhile in the Fourth Division, Dorridge & Hockley Heath recorded an impressive win over already-promoted Bearley.

After smashing 229-8, the home side dismissed Bearley for 165 to earn a 64-run win but they finished in fourth place, some 50 points off the top two.
