RELEGATION-threatened Redlynch & Hale couldn't have faced a tougher ask when County Division Two leaders Parley arrived at Woodfalls Cross needing a win and 21 points to secure the title.

In-form Parley won the toss and had no hesitation in batting on a hot, sunny afternoon.

Ben Brown sent down his customary ten overs for a frugal 31 runs without reward, but Ched Hopkins broke through Sam Collin's (38) defence at 63-1.

Will Hewlett then had Alex Nippard pouched by James Taylor, but a 95-run stand for the third wicket put Parley well and truly in the driver's seat.

Shane Green, 60, and Ollie Green, 87, were taking the game away from the hosts, but finally Taylor broke through.

The visitors still accelerated, passing the 200 mark with 15 overs still to go and although Taylor, Dave Webber and Hopkins all bagged a brace, more power hitting from the lower order saw a massive 332-7 posted at tea.

Facing such a formidable total proved just too much for Taylor's team and although players got themselves in, no one could capitalise and go on to the big score which was needed if there was to be any chance of a shock result.

The hosts tried their best, but the powerful Parley attack made regular inroads. Once again, only Rhys Williams was able to dig in with a creditable 33, and with Jamie Hicks mopping up the tail, the Wiltshire side's County Division Two days came to an end, being all out for 183.

There was better news for the club's second string, who efficiently knocked over South Wilts IV.

Dom Sell, 3-14, and returning skipper Stan Boardman, 4-25, reduced South Wilts to 117 all out.

Then an elegant 38 from Ewan Tanner and good knocks from Harvey Boardman, 21 not out, and Alex Tilley, 33 not out, overhauled the target with six wickets in hand.

Meanwhile, at Hale, Redlynch's thirds recovered from 20-6 against Ampfield & N Baddesley II, to post 105, with Michael Brown, 25, top scoring.

The visitors struggled as Ash Church, 4-27, got amongst them, but overcame the target with four wickets in hand.
