BOURTON Vale moved out of the West of England Premier Cricket League Gloucester Division bottom spot with a thrilling two-run win at Woodmancote.

Skipper Peter Geddes (62) led the way in Vale’s total of 250-4 from 50 overs after winning the toss and electing to bat.

Ryan Newhook (53 not out), Ryan Hill (39no), Mark Whitney (35) and Sam Arthurs (26) weighed in with runs after opener Jack Galpin (8) was dismissed cheaply.

Woodmancote finished agonisingly close in reply but were restricted to 248-9 as Vale claimed a vital win to move up to third-from-bottom in the table above Corse and Staunton and Stroud.

The wickets were shared between Newhook (2-36), John Dolan (2-34), Hill (2-23) and Arthurs (2-63) as Chris Oliver’s 80 was not enough.

The second-from-bottom Vale seconds scored 281-5 in 45 overs but lost by 24 runs at home to Woodmancote, who totalled 305-7 in the Gloucester Division.
