Worcestershire Seconds were beaten in two days by their Lancashire counterparts in a Second Eleven Championship clash at Ombersley.

The home side trailed by 177 on first innings and left Lancashire a victory target of 29 after being bowled out for 205 in their second innings despite a half century from Joe Clarke.

Lancashire resumed on 202-6 – a lead of 45 – and Brett D'Oliveira quickly removed overnight century-maker Andrea Agathangelou for 104 with the total on 210.

But then Stephen Parry (34) and Aaron Lilley (49) added 71 for the eighth wicket.

Paceman Graeme Cessford claimed the last three wickets to finish with 4-58 while D'Oliveira (3-76) was the other main wicket-taker.

Worcestershire lost three wickets for 27 at the start of their second innings before D'Oliveira (37) and wicket-keeper Clarke (51) added 86 for the fourth wicket.

D'Oliveira hit six boundaries and Clarke's knocked spanned only 56 balls and contained seven boundaries.

A sixth wicket stand of 48 between Ed Barnard (33) and skipper Gareth Andrew (44) lifted the total to 180 and ensured Lancashire would have to bat again.

But the last five wickets went down for 27 runs and Lancashire openers Luis Reece and Alex Davies knocked off the modest target in 4.3 overs.
