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.
