Sam Egan (20) was the only other batsman to halt the collapse.

Greg Leighton was the destroyer-in-chief, taking 8-52 in his 12 overs, and then led home the Bromyard batting with an unbeaten 49 off 32 balls. Victory was guaranteed at the end of 16 overs.

The Seconds completed their season away at relegated Belbroughton with a winning draw.
