Video: Whelan’s 70 not out wins first game of the season for Stratford

Birmingham & District League Division Three Worcester CC 172/9 (50 overs) Stratford CC 173/7 (42 overs) Stratford won by three wickets   AN expertly-timed knock of 70 not out from Chris Whelan got Stratford over the line at Swans Nest Lane today, as they chased down Worcester’s total of 172 on the first day of the season. Stratford picked up four ducks on their scorecard, including opener Adrian Witts and Dutch international Ben Cooper, but Whelan, coming in at five, played an assured innings on a difficult day for batsmen. Tom Grundy’s electric form with the ball in Worcester’s innings reduced them to 41 for 4, but a frustrating and unbeaten last wicket partnership of 27 rescued their score to a more respectable 172 for 9.

STRATFORD Town travel to South Wales tomorrow to face league champions, Merthyr Town, on the final day of the season, but the big question is, with second spot still up for grabs, do they risk playing a strong side? Town are already guaranteed a home tie in a play-off semi-final on Tuesday night, just three days later. One point ahead of local rivals Evesham United in third, they know that winning Saturday’s game in Wales guarantees them second in Division One (South & West) of the Southern League, and home advantage in the play-off final, should they get there.
