I CRICKET CHAT. I [BY THE TYKE."] The weather was rather chilly for cricket on Saturday, and a same of football would have been more suited to the atmospheric conditions. Colwall journeyed to Hereford, where they encountered Holmer on the race- course ground, the result being a draw greatly in favour of Colwall. Batting first, the visitors opened with L Meakin and Johns, the latter departing for 6 with 14 on the board. Mitford failed, and F G Meakin, the Colwall captain, then joined his brother, and there was considerable trouble for the Holmer bowlers and fielders. The pair put on runs at a good pace, and F G Meakin bad subscribed 45 before he was bowled by Levason. Dagger then joined L Meakin and a further prolific stand was made, which con- tinued until Meakin passed the century, when his brother declared the venture closed at 197 for 3 wickets. Meakin compiled 101 and was still undefeated, and although not without blemish, yet his batting was always attractive. Dagger's 34 included a good sprinkling of boundary strokes. Cripps secured two wickets and Levason the other. Tea was taken on the declaration of Colwall's innings. Holmer bad only a draw to play for, and made a bad start, losing Inglis, Tuke and Levason cheaply. Shinn and Foulds each subscribed 15 and then Hayes failed, but with Thorne and Cripps together a good stand was made, the pair playing out time. The score was taken to 92 for 6 wickets, when stumps were drawn. Thorne's share was 16 and Cripps hit hard for 39, including three 6's. Dagger bad 4 wickets for 46 runs. < Eastnor paid a visit to Froome Valley at Stoke Edith on Saturday last, and found a pretty strong side opposed to them, including H K Foster, the old Worcestershire captain. Froome Valley won the toss and taking first knock, opened with Hunt and Higgins to the bowling of Winter and Court. Both men were dismissed with but four runs on the board, but Foster and Green-Price carried the score to 37 before the latter was bowled by Court for 7. Foster left at 43 for 31, and after his departure Dent was the only batsman to reach double figures. The total was 73. Court took 7 wickets for 33, a good performance, while Phillips had 1 for 9 and Winter 1 for 28. In reply Eastnor could only make 33. thus being 40 behind. The only stand of any account was between Phillips (13) and Howell (not out 6) for the seventh wicket. Wargent and Dent were the successful bowlers, each securing five wickets. Ledbury open their season next week, when they receive a visit from Barbourneon Thursday, and go to Withington on the following Saturday. Eastnor are at home to West Malvern to-morrow (Saturday).
