STRATFORD made up further ground on Birmingham and District League Division Three leaders Stourbridge with a convincing seven-wicket victory over Redditch at Swan's Nest Lane on Saturday.

Opener Tom Field’s 46 handed Redditch a solid start, but once he was dismissed, James Urquhart (4-32) improved his tally of wickets for the season to 43.

Archie Walker joined in with three for 61 as the visitors were all out for 158.

A robust 91 from 66 balls by Dexter Purser saw Stratford to victory in the 25th over.

The win closes the gap on Stourbridge to 13 points after they were held to a winning draw by Milford Hall.
