Struggling Moseley in bid for a Walmley win

MOSELEY's desperate battle to remain in the Birmingham Midshires Premier Division continues tomorrow as they travel to Walmley knowing that a win will all but secure their place in the top flight.

MOSELEY's desperate battle to remain in the Birmingham Midshires Premier Division continues tomorrow as they travel to Walmley knowing that a win will all but secure their place in the top flight.

Huw Jones' side are still nervously looking over their shoulders after falling to a 57-run defeat at Leamington Spa last week Faisal Irfan took 5-13 as Moseley were bowled out for just 84.

There was further bad news down at Station Road as Knowle & Dorridge were dismissed for an embarrassing 48 by Wolverhampton to end their hopes of winning the league.

The nine-wicket defeat leaves leaders Walsall way out of their reach.

Chris Russell took 5-9 as the visitors cruised to victory in just 9.4 overs.

K&D host Kenilworth Wardens tomorrow.

Dorridge line up against Halesowen tomorrow after suffering a four-wicket defeat at Coventry NW last week.

Abdul Hafeez scored 72, in the Dorridge total of 161 for eight, but Russell Rice's 57 proved to be the lynchpin of Coventry's response.

A win tomorrow will keep them in the division.

Meanwhile Berkswell take on high-flying Newport full of confidence after beating Evesham by seven wickets to stay in second place.

Evesham were bowled out for 160 with former Leicestershire seamer Dave Brignull taking 6 for 46 for the home side.

Reliable Danish batsman Freddie Klokker (65 not out) and Dominic Ostler (51) eased Berkswell to a convincing victory that leaves them nine points clear of Water Orton.

And in the Third Division, Olton must win away at Kington to keep up the pressure on second placed Brockhampton.

A four-wicket win over Studley last week kept the Gloucestershire side on their toes.

Roy Adams (3-37) and Babar Khan (3-40) inflicted the damage as Studley were restricted to 149-9.

In Olton's reply Gareth Simpson top scored on 31 before being run out.
