OLD Bristolians Westbury sealed the Martin Berrill Bristol & District League’s Senior Division championship with a side featuring five teenagers wrapping up an 82-run victory at home to Claverham.

Young all-rounder Ollie Meadows hit 53 at the top of the order then took 3-26 from five overs of leg spin while Rupert Swetman (39) and skipper Will Penny (35 not) also shone for the Failand club.

OB Westbury, who were already assured of promotion to the West of England Premier League, go up with Bristol YMCA who finish second after a 179-run hammering of Bradley Stoke.

Tayyab Riaz again starred for YMCA, top scoring on 117 off 110 (14 fours and two sixes) before taking 5-25 from nine overs of seam.

The 27-year-old Rawalpindi all-rounder now has 620 league runs to his credit and a league-leading 47 wickets with one more round of matches to go.

At the other end of the table, Chew Magna’s relegation was confirmed with a six-wicket reverse away to Coalpit Heath who whom Dafydd Nicholas (62) and Paul Giddings (60) put on an unbroken 108.

Pak Bristolians moved closer towards the Division One crown with a hard-earned 11-run home win over Winterbourne 2nds who slipped a place to third.

Sohail Javed (28) and opener Adnan Aslam (27) helped their side battle to 143-8 off 45, Jamie Studley finishing with 3-30 from nine.

And tight spells from Ismail Zia (3-12) and Abdullah Tabraiz (3-23, both from nine) then helped restrict Winterbourne to a reply of 132-9.

Bedminster 2nds made the most of this result to go second following a nine-wicket crushing of fourth-placed Whitchurch who were rushed out for just 79.

Pak Bristolians (242) complete their season with a visit to eighth-placed Knowle while Bedminster (229) visit Portishead, who are ninth, and Winterbourne (227) entertain mid-table Downend 2nds.

Steve Spurrell produced fabulous figures of 7-24 and Benni McCarthy supported well with 3-13 as Cleeve were dismissed for 39 and a 70-run loss at fellow Division Two relegation-battlers Bohemians.

Almondsbury are already down but a three-way contest to avoid finishing second last will now go right down to the wire between Bishopston 2nds (159), Bohemians (161) and Cleeve (163).

Lawrence Cook’s 100 was the highlight of a home 60-run win over Lodway for Bish who on Saturday travel to fifth-placed Hampset with Bohs away to Lansdown 2nds (sixth) and Cleeve home to Bitton (fourth).

Backwell Flax Bourton missed a chance to clinch the Division Three title with a low scoring 19-run setback away to Midsomer Norton 2nds.

Shawn Bennett hammered an unbeaten 87 for Bristol West Indian Phoenix 2nds who cruised past Old Down by ten wickets, and Faizan Asif captured 5-29 in a two-wicket triumph for Pakistani Express over Long Ashton.
