Stratford denied as match is abandoned


STRATFORD were denied victory when their Birmingham League Division Three game at Old Hill was abandoned.

The Panthers appeared to be on their way another win when the rain arrived at Haden Hill with the visitors on 108 for one, in pursuit of an Old Hill total of 147.

Ravi Nagra top scored for Old Hill with 64, while Dexter Purser (4-36) and Archie Walker (3-19) were the successful bowlers for Stratford.

Although Purser had gone for 52 with the score at 107, Stratford were in the driving seat when the game came to a premature end.

In the Second S 2nd XI Division, Jack Reidy claimed five wickets as Stratford 2nds (189-9) lost by six wickets to leaders Berkswell (190-4) at Swans Nest Lane.
