The last weekend of the cricket season capped off an excellent season for Pedmore Cricket Club.

The 2nd XI led by Dave Gibson clinched the Worcestershire League division 6 title by 10 points from Barnt Green to round off a memorable season for the Pedmore Hall Lane club.

Stand out performances were Joe Baker who finished the leagues leading wicket taker with 34 including all seven in the victory against Oldswinford and Stourbridge Social in July.

Jack McDonnell was Mr Consistency with the bat averaging 35 from his 17 innings.

Then, on Sunday 12th, the club had the pleasure of hosting the Worcestershire Under 19's blast finals day.

The first game of the day saw Stourbridge post 176/6 from their 20 overs against Barnards Green who fell short by 34 runs.

Next up saw the home team led by George Homer take on Barnt Green. Excellent bowling and fielding restricted the vistitors to 121 all out off 19.3 overs.

Pedmore secured an 8 wicket victory losing only two wickets with more than 3 overs of the innings remaining.

The final saw Stourbridge post a challenging 149/5 from their 20 overs. Maintaining the run rate, but regularly losing wickets and with the game on a knife edge with 3 balls to go, Toby Holt planted a four into the boundary to secure victory by 3 wickets.

A superb advertisement for cricket from both teams! Vice chair Paul Meakin said: "Here at Pedmore we have placed enormous emphasis on growing our junior section and the fruits of this hard work are now starting to pay off.

"We offer cricket and hospitality for the whole family with development and enjoyment at the heart of what we do.

"We have league cricket in our 3 Worcestershire County League teams on a Saturday, friendly cricket on Sundays and midweek, Ladies softball and league cricket along with junior cricket from the age of 5 starting with Allstars.

"For the first time in our history we were able to field a 4th team on a Saturday. A season of memories to treasure!"
