At the other end of the table Chip­ping Sod­bury sec­onds trumped Framp­ton-on-sev­ern by 51 runs for only their third win of the sum­mer and Wood­peck­ers de­feated Tet­bury by six wick­ets.

Bour­ton Vale sec­onds opened a 14-point lead at the top of Di­vi­sion Four cour­tesy of a nine-wicket suc­cess over their Lyd­ney coun­ter­parts, tak­ing full ad­van­tage of pre­vi­ous pace­set­ters Newent be­ing rained out at Chel­tenham Civil Ser­vice.

And half cen­turies from Ulysses Alonso and Luke Hughes scripted a 32-run home vic­tory for Tewkes­bury sec­onds against Dy­mock.
