Playing eight-a-side pairs where the score starts at 200, Olton reached 292 for four with Rob Yates 23, Ethan Brookes 23 and Williams Rigg 24 leading the way.

Neither Whitacre were then restricted to 242 for seven with Hayden Burke claiming four for 16.

Later in the day, Olton pulled off a prized 10 run win over Knowle and Dorridge to lift the Sunday League trophy.

Olton’s overseas player Xavier Gabriel signed off in style claiming six for 27 before returning home to St Lucia.
