County Paceman Morris In Six Wicket Haul For Bridgnorth

Worcestershire paceman Charlie Morris was amongst the wickets for Bridgnorth in the Birmingham League Division One clash away to Old Hill.

Morris took the new ball and bowled unchanged in returning the impressive figures of 13-3-27-6.

It followed on from his five wickets for Worcestershire Seconds in the Trophy clash with Unicorns and some impressive bowling in the Second Eleven Championship match with Yorkshire at Scarborough.

But Old Hill scrambled to a three wicket win after being set only a 94 target.

Morris had earlier top-scored with a defiant 24 off 78 balls batting at number seven as Bridgnorth were dismissed for 93.

In another Division One match, County duo George Rhodes were also amongst the wickets for Barnards Green at home to Attocks CC.

Hepburn finished with a return of 17-3-56-4 and Rhodes 17-6-52-3 as Attocks were bowled out for 188.

But Barnards Green were dismissed for 154 in reply despite 36 off 63 balls with five fours from opener Rhodes.

Paceman Josh Tongue continued his return to bowling by sending down eight overs for 22 runs as his club

Brockhampton defeated hosts Wellington by four wickets after chasing down a 143 target. In the Premier Division,

Worcestershire Academy player Ollie Westbury hit a patient half century for Shrewsbury in their seven wicket defeat away to Knowle and Dorridge.

Westbury struck three fours in making exactly 50 off 123 balls but, after being fourth out at 127, Shrewsbury lost their last six wickets for 27.
