Opener Kings inspires Feckenham to victory over Colwall

Redditch Editorial 3rd Aug, 2018

OPENER Andrew Kings hit 72 not out to steer Feckenham to a nine-wickets victory away to Colwall in the Worcestershire County League Division One.

Set a revised target if 146 after Cookley reached 155 all out, Kings and Jamie Griffiths (45 not out) led Feckenham to a third win in four matches after just 26 overs.

Feckenham, who now lie sixth in the table, are at home to fifth-placed Worcester tomorrow.

Feckenham had won the toss last weekend and inserted hosts Cookley.

The first five batsmen departed cheaply but then skipper Paul Thomas (41no) and Ben Quinlan (48) rallied the innings.

Yasir Mehmood (3-34) and Muhammad Idrees (3-41) whipped through the tail to dismiss the hosts for 155. There were also two wickets apiece for Travis Bartels (2-18) and Tom Coulson (2-14).

Though Idress fell for 12, Feckenham took control in their innings with Kings and Griffiths leading them to a comfortable win.

Feckenham Seconds’ match at home to Cookley in 2nd XI Division One was abandoned.

Cookley had reached 103-1 in 25 overs before the rain came.
