Ashton's target on promotion
12:30pm Thursday 29th August 2013 in Sport
ASHTON-under-Hill still have a fighting chance of promotion to the John Shepherd Cotswold Hills Cricket League Premier Division on the final weekend.
The villagers beat Chipping Campden by three wickets, while promotion rivals Leamington thirds lost to Alcester and Ragley.
Leamington are just three points ahead of Ashton in Division One as they battle to join champions Catherine de Barnes in the top tier.
At Chipping Campden, the hosts collapsed from 42-0 to 78 all out with only Guy Nicholls (31) getting going before he was caught behind off skipper Will Archer.
Ashton’s stand-out bowlers were Sam Cope (3-16), Matt Wakefield (3-11) and Tom Archer (2-2).
In reply, Ashton lost seven wickets before they reached 50 but David Wood (20 not out) and Will Archer (2no) guided the visitors home.
