1st XI Birmingham League Division Two
Aston Manor 154
Cannock 155-2
CANNOCK WIN BY 8 WICKETS

Despite losing with a tame performance against Cannock, Aston Manor has avoided relegation following Tamworths defeat at Old Elizabethans sent the Staffordshire side down to Division Three.

After electing to bat first all of Manors top eight batsmen got into double figures but none were able to post a substantial score with Arfan Khan (27no), Rikki Bassi (23) and Peter Evans sponsored by CKW Distribution Ltd (22) being the main contributors in a below par total of 154. Dave Womble (5-37) was the pick of the Cannock bowlers.

Manor knew they had to strike early to put the hosts under pressure, but hard hitting Mike Talbot (91no) took the game away from them despite a first wicket at this level for Trent Turner as Cannock cruised to an 8 wicket victory.

This young Manor side complete a difficult season next week against Ombersley in front of an anticipated large crowd at Church Road. The crowd and players will give their thanks and bid a fond farewell to the excellent South African, Ryan van Nierkerk, who has been superb for the club during the season. The youngsters can take a lot of pride from their efforts, but plans are already underway to improve the quality and experience of the squad for next season.
