Warwickshire Premier League
1st XI
Bedworth 90 all out
Aston Manor 91-8

The ground staff at Bedworth did a magnificent job in making it possible to play this top of the table fixture, but the extremely wet conditions led to a predictable low scoring encounter.

Aurell Kirnon (11-3-26-5) was again in imperious form as he used the conditions superbly to destroy the top order batting of the hosts. Sam Smart (33) and Ross Parnell (17no) provided some mid order resistance before spinner Shaun Findlay (7-2-10-3) completed the job for Manor seeing Bedworth all out for 90.

Although Manor’s first two wickets fell to disappointing decisions they still appeared in control at 33-2, before their comfort zone was eroded by a collapse that saw them slump to an alarming 51-6. Smart (4-35) was again the outstanding performer for Bedworth, but fortunately for Manor, Kirnon (32) was able to more than match his all-round performance as he smashed the ball to all parts of the ground enabling skipper Jason Furnell to hit the winning runs.

This victory takes Manor to the top the League, and the challenge is now to remain there for the rest of the season. With Manor’s 2nd, 3rd and 4th XI all occupying top two positions in their respective divisions there should hopefully be enough strength in depth throughout the club to achieve the goal of an immediate return to the Birmingham League.
