Wellesbourne are champions again!

Wellesbourne CC celebrate their crowning as champions in the Cotswold Hills Cricket League Premier Division.

WELLESBOURNE Cricket Club secured a second successive Cotswold Hills Cricket Premier Division title on Saturday.

They got the win they needed to retained their crown, beating Leamington IIIs by 90 runs at Loxley Close.

They topped the table with two more points than last year, but the win didn’t matter in the end as second-placed Norton Lindsey slipped to a 35-run defeat away at Long Itchington.

It was a bad weekend for Norton Lindsey as their IIs also lost to fellow promotion chasers Stoneleigh, by just 14 runs, dashing their hopes of promotion to the Second Division.
