Westbury extended their lead at the top of OCA Division One to 18 points after a 69-run victory away to Minster Lovell.

The visitors made a terrible start batting first with the top four batsmen managing just 16 runs between them before Tom Gurney (42), Richard Tredwell (34) and Sam Stoop (42) scored vital runs in the middle-order.

Once they were dismissed, the Westbury innings quickly collapsed to 168 all out.

Minster made a woeful start in reply as only one batsman of the top six reached double figures.

Elliot Graham (20) and James Merriman (20) offered some resistance but Charlie Harper took three wickets in four overs as the hosts were bowled out for 99. Sam Stoop, Andy Clarke and Richard Tredwell took two each.
