Bromsgrove's First XI did a good job of restricting Moseley to 199 on Saturday but what came after the tea break probably surprised everyone involved. Jono Watts helped himself to 5/31 as the Boars were skittled for just 63 runs with only Ash Newfield and James Ganderton reaching double figures.
The 2nd XI move up to 4th in the table after a narrow victory over Dorridge. They had Adam Jones (top) to thank as he top scored with an unbeaten 46 as the Boars reached their target with 2 wickets to spare. Earlier, Alex Wilkinson took 4/41 and Matt Banham 3/45 as Dorridge were restricted to 168 in the first innings.
Rich Hope (bottom) showed a return to form with the bat as he top scored for the 3rds in their match against Halesowen. Hope made 60 and was well supported by Collins (44), Burrows (43) and Smith (41) as the Boars reached 246. Halesowen's reply all but fizzled out once Sam Johnson had bowled danger man Tom Williams. Chris Burford followed up with his 3rd 5 wicket haul of the year.
Richard Barnes top scored with 63 as the Cavaliers made 233 over at Bartestree. Matt Crane took 2 early wickets on his return from injury and with Tom Downing taking 4/23, Bartestree only reached 96 before being bowled out.

The ECB continues to work with Sport England on the pioneering club accreditation scheme 'Clubmark' to develop a vibrant and healthy club cricket infrastructure.
Cricket clubs can play a key role in the successful delivery of Building Partnerships – cricket's strategic plan for 2006-2009 - by supporting the delivery and implementation of the following programmes:
The ECB Clubmark and community cricket clubs play a central role in all of these programmes and Clubmark will provide the standards that clubs involved in these programmes will aspire to.
In addition, it is expected that clubs who achieve the ECB Clubmark will be recognised and rewarded for their hard work and commitment to club cricket in England and Wales.
By registering to work towards ECB Clubmark, clubs join a growing number of cricket clubs across England and Wales that are prioritising junior development, creating a benchmark for high quality community club cricket.
County Cricket Development Managers can help clubs through the process of achieving ECB Clubmark Accreditation.
ECB Clubmark gives clubs an opportunity to write and implement new procedures as well as acknowledge existing practices. Cricket clubs are required to present evidence and demonstrate implementation across four different themes, culminating in the production of a Club Development Plan.
The four themes are:
