LIAM Ridings hit a stunning century as Bromsgrove CC cruised to a 149-run victory against struggling Bromyard.

Ridings eventually fell on 128 from just 109 balls and was supported by Alex Milton (76) as the Boars posted 305-6 from their 50 overs.

And Ridings also took three catches as the home side bowled Bromyard out for just 156 in 36 overs at St. Godwalds Park.

The result means Bromsgrove sit sixth in the Worcestershire County League Premier Division table.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, the Boars put on 47 runs for their first wicket before Jayden Levitt (24) fell to the bowling of Hugo Bernard-Pullen (1-22).

Bromsgrove opener Greg Chinn (43) fell just short of a half-century, bowled by Tom Harvey (1-59), in a 66-run second-wicket stand with Ridings.

The Boars took command of the game as Ridings struck 18 boundaries, made up of 15 fours and three sixes.

And alongside Milton, the pair put on 155 runs for the third wicket before both fell in quick succession to the bowling of James Wilson (4-61).

Wilson also accounted for Richard Linfield (5) and Michael Wyres (2) as Bromsgrove ended their innings with a strong total of 305-6.

In reply, Wyres (3-52) removed Bromyard openers Ian Bullock (9) and Alexander Woods (29) as the visitors made a steady start.

However, a flurry of wickets put Bromsgrove firmly on top with Bromyard left in trouble on 96-6.

Ethan Dalloway (1-17) ran out George Godsall (13) and then accounted for Mike Reece (0) the following over.

And Bromyard then lost Rob Willis (13) and Bernard-Pullen (13) to the bowling of Wyres and Abdullah Ejaz (3-40) respectively.

Darcy Sparks (2-18) brought an end to Jack Barrett’s (39) innings and then claimed the wicket of David Taylor (1).

With victory in their sights, Ejaz wrapped up Bromyard’s tail, taking the wickets of Wilson (21) and Harvey (10) as the Boars eased to a comfortable win.

Bromsgrove are next in action against Stourport-On-Severn on Saturday, June 29 with the match to begin at 12.30pm at Walshes Farm Meadows.
