GUILSFIELD claimed a battling home draw against Bomere Heath IIs to remain in the promotion mix in division six.

The Guils lost openers Garry Lewis (24) and Gary Griffiths (19) cheaply before Andy Pugh worked the scoreboard until his demise, snared by Dave Langton LBW for a top scoring 61.

Langton completed his 5-45 with the wicket of Dave Lewis (33) while Emily Day (4-26) polished off the Guils tail to leave the villagers defending 181.

Sam Birch (3-46) struck early in reply while Duncan Todd (3-16) celebrated the wickets of George Fry (26) and Langton (23).

However Steve Tomkins (29no) dug on for the ninth wicket to steer Heath to 133-8 and deny the Guils glory.
