2nds suffer opening defeat

2nd XI
Birmingham League Division Two (North)
Aston Manor 154 all out
Worfield 155-4

A heavily depleted Aston Manor 2nd XI were well beaten following a well below par performance at Church Road. Only Joe Griffiths (40) showed any real form with the bat as the hosts slumped to a very disappointing total of 154 all out. Adam Nevitt (20) and Mo Haroon (19) both got starts but it was only Griffiths who was able to make any significant contribution, batting with a maturity that belies his young age.

As well as missing three of their top six batsmen, Manor were also without a couple of their front line bowlers and this was also evident as the visitors had few problems in reaching their target for the loss of only four wickets. Trent Turner (2-13) was easily the pick of the Manor men with some fine off spin bowling, but overall this was a very poor performance and Manor will need to improve quickly if they are to launch the expected challenge for promotion.
