Comprehensive victory against Highway Spartans

1st XI
Warwickshire Premier League
Aston Manor 223-9
Highway Spartans 153 all out

This comprehensive victory away at Highway Spartans will hopefully provide the platform for Aston Manor to kick start their season and launch a serious challenge at regaining promotion back to the Birmingham League at the first attempt.

Manor opted to bat first and a very solid and consistent performance saw them post a challenging total of 223-9 on what was a difficult wicket.

Useful contributions from Junior Johnson (34), Shaun Findlay (31), Sahal Malvernkar (25), Waqas Younis (24) and Recordo Gordon (24) gave the platform for a sparkling innings from young Joe Griffiths (54no) which saw Manor close on 223-9 from their 50 overs despite some good bowling from Rory Curran (3-40).

In reply the hosts had no answer to the aggression of Manor’s quick bowlers as they were dismissed for 153 with only Ari Doak-Smith (59no) offering any real resistance. Manor have three bowlers in their side with genuine pace and they were all successful as Clement Smith ended with figures of 4-15, Kieran Carroll 3-37 and ex Warwickshire pro Recordo Gordon took 2-28.

Manor were bright and alert in the field and have set the required standard for the rest of the season.
