A BRILLIANT 90 from Angus Bartlett blazed a trail for Aston Ingham 1st XI to set a target of 217-8 off 45 overs at home to Chipping Camden on Saturday.

The opener's 121-ball knock included 14 fours and a six before he fell lbw for the seventh wicket with the score on 201.

Alexander Gooding also fired a quick-fire 38 off 41 balls in a 67-run third wicket partnership with Bartlett, cracking eight fours.

Toby O'Neill then had the visitors at 6-2 with two early wickets, before claiming the third with 22 on the board.

And Bartlett then took care of the lower order with four wickets as Aston dismissed Chipping for 182.

The 2nds won by 29 runs away to Bream 1sts, setting a 40-over target of 130-5 before dismissing the hosts for 101 after 32 overs.

It was even closer for the 3rds who beat hosts St Briavels by 11 runs after amassing 147-4 off 40 overs, Max Evans top-scoring with an unbeaten 55.

Saints only lost three wickets in reply, but struggled to score against tight Aston bowling, running out of time with the score on 136, Evans taking two wickets and Colin Leighton the other.

But Aston 4ths were beaten by 128 runs by visitors Alvington & Woolaston, who struck 197-3 off their 34 overs before skittling the hosts for 69.

Goodrich 1st XI won a rain-affected match by six wickets, reaching the adjusted target with 139-4 off 22 overs after dismissing visitors Woolhope for 156 in the 42nd over.

Jack Lewis took three Goodrich wickets, backed by Joe Provis and Jack Waldis with two apiece, before Lewis with 43 and Harry Porter with an unbeaten 32 guided them home.

The 2nds set a giant 288-4 off 40 overs away to Fownhope 2nds, Ayrton Lowther smacking 168, backed by Colin Walker with 50.

And Strollers struggled with the bat, all out for 93 in the 22nd over.

Ross 1st XI are still to get their season started after Saturday's home match with Builth Wells was cancelled.

At least the 2nds saw some action, albeit in a seven-wicket loss away to Bartestree & Lugwardine 3rds.

Alex Springer scored 49, Richard Jeffryes 32 and Ben Rimington 21 in their 149-6, but the hosts responded with 150-3 with overs to spare.
