HIMLEY captain Greg Wright has praised last week's Black Country Floodlit T20 contest as the best yet.

Himley won this year's competition after beating Brewood by 68 runs. Tom Kohler-Cadmor smashed 72 off 24 balls before team-mate Stuart Wedge took five wickets.

Wright said: "The contest was the best one yet. We saw some great cricket and had great support from those that attended.

"It has provided a bright spot for the club in what has been a difficult season."

The club's chances of survival were dealt another blow when they lost to Brockhampton on Saturday in a rain-interrupted match.

"We now need a miracle to get out of trouble," added Wright. "We are already planning for next season to make sure we are in a position to come straight back up."
