AN all-round performance from Barney Orr earned Whiteparish an end-of-season victory over Farley in County Division 4 West.

Electing to bat first to the sounds of thunder in the distance, Farley's innings began in spritely fashion. But, as the skies darkened, so did Farley's progress. Simon Wakeford nicked one behind off Ben Fisher, then Mike Covill fell in the same fashion to Orr.

The latter then tore the Farley middle order, gaining telling movement off the pitch with his left-arm seam. Andy Coveney's 16 was the highest score as Orr claimed 5-40. Farley were all out for 92 in the 24th over.

Jim Dovey looked to get the Parish chase underway briskly, but was beaten by Jake Hand's flight for 14. Hand claimed two other quick wickets to make Parish nervy, and then the prize scalp of Richie Hamblin with a tumbling return catch.

But with the innings wobbling at 43-5, Orr joined Louis Bromilow at the crease. Both looked to be positive, with Orr in particular striking the ball cleanly. He raced to 35 not out and saw the visitors home by five wickets.

It wasn't enough to save Parish from the drop, as they finished third from bottom, while Farley ended 10th.

There was a five wicket win too for Whiteparish II against Farley II in Regional 3 West. Farley were all out for 146. Charles Steenkamp's 55 led the chase for the home side. Both teams finished in the top 12, meaning they will move up a tier ahead of the league's restructure set for next season.
