Club cricket update

Southern Premier League

Hayes beat Wokingham by 9 wickets in the weekend's most important fixture. A full-strength Hayes side really showed their class. They restricted a strong Wokingham side to 168 ao in 37 overs and then knocked them off for the loss of just one wicket. Jenny Jackson took 5/21 and Tash Farrant 3/31. Only Heather Knight (79) put up any serious resistance as Wokingham lost their last eight wickets for 12 runs. In-form Lydia Greenway (73*) and Kathryn Leng (65*) knocked off the runs in the 30th over.

Bath beat Hursley by 9 wickets. Having bowled out nine-woman Hursley for just 81 Bath made short-shrift of knocking off the runs they needed losing just one wicket.

Bexley beat Brighton by 9 wickets. A weakened and injury-ravaged Brighton team managed to clock up 135 all out with Freya Davies top-scoring with 50, but Alice Davidson-Richards (64*) led Bexley to a much-needed victory.

Finchley beat Loughton by 3 wickets. Loughton set a respectable total of 169/8 in their 50 overs with skipper Joanne Cook top-scoring with 56. Natasha Miles and Anna Nicholls both picked up three wickets. Beth Morgan (73*) held the Finchley response together as they reached their target with seven wickets down and three and a half overs to spare.

Unbeaten Hayes still top the table followed closely by Wokingham, Finchley and Bath. Hursley, Bexley and Brighton are fighting for survival.

Midlands Premier League

Walmley showed their title credentials by beating Meir Heath by 23 runs. Amy Jones (47) and Becky Grundy (30*) were the main run-scorers as Walmley set Meir Heath 161 to win having lost nine wickets in the process. Meir Heath crumbled to 32/5 thanks to openers Elizabeth Russell (2/24) and Kayleigh Alsop (3/11) and never recovered despite 48 from Shanel Daley and 37 from Charlotte Whyle. They were bowled out in the 42nd over with Grundy also claiming 3/26.

Sheffield Utd beat Pershore by 205 runs. Sheffield kept up the pressure on Walmley with a convincing win over Pershore. Tammy Beaumont (73) and Lauren Winfield (60) set up the Sheffield total of 280/6. Pershore had no answer to Camilla Westwood (4/33) and Aimee Simms (4/2) as they were skittled out for 75.

Katie Paterson (2/16) was the pick of the Stockport bowlers, but no batsmen could anchor the Stockport response as they were bowled out for 97. Katie Haszeldine (33) did what she could but she was fighting a lost cause.

Trafford beat Chester Boughton by 6 runs. In a nail-biter Trafford managed to defend 125 ao restricting Chester to 119/4 in their 40 overs. Mary Priestner for Trafford and E Ecclestone for Chester both hit 31. It was Chester's first defeat of the season
