Claverham seconds recorded an excellent victory over Shirehampton to ease their relegation fears.

Claverham second XI recorded a victory over Shirehampton to ease relegation fears.

After winning the toss and asking Shirehampton to bat, opening bowlers Sean Cutler (1-8 from six overs ) and Mick Edmunds (2-13 from seven overs) got the away side off to a good start.

Opener Christopher Moss (23) was the only batsman who managed to stick around as wickets fell around him. The introduction of the skipper Matt Croker (2-16 from nine overs) and Ben Powell (4-33 from seven overs) were to strong for Shirehampton and saw them slum from 81-2 to a below par 112 all out.

After the tea interval, the experience of Andy Copeland (15) and Andy Mayers (12) moved the score on to 30-1. The departure of Mayers saw Steve Caffrey come to the crease.

Caffrey scored a fine unbeaten 42, with support from Mick Edmunds (10) saw the score to 97-3. With 16 runs to win, Matt Croker (8 not out) finished the game off to see Claverham chase down 113 in 29 overs.
