Tom Wells made another century as Leicestershire Second XI won their Trophy game at Worcestershire by seven wickets.
Alex Wyatt won the toss and invited Worcestershire to bat first at Kidderminster. The Tudor-style pavilion languished unobtrusively on the boundary, while at the other end of the ground the commuter trains were rushing noisily to their various destinations.
The Worcestershire innings of 218-8 was based around 100 from captain Michael Johnson. His 50 came from 73 balls and included seven fours, while the ton was registered off 103 balls with 13 fours and a six.
The major partnership of the innings was 65 between Johnson and second top-scorer Joe Leach (29). Ollie Freckingham picked up 3-30 (7 overs) for County, while other figures returned were: Wyatt 1-47 (8), trialist Ian Holland 1-43 (7), Wells 2-32 (7), Ben Collins 0-33 (6), Ben Raine 1-30 (6).
In reply, Karl Turner (46, 49b) put on 31 for the first wicket with Angus Robson before the latter fell to a fine catch in the gully by Tom Kohler-Cadmore off graham Cessford (1-36 off 6).
Turner then put on 49 with Wells before slow left armer Shaaiq Choudhry (2-35 off 8) dismissed both him and Raine (0, 1 legitimate ball) in quick succession.
Wells and Harry Bush then added a splendid unbroken 138 to seal a seven-wicket win. Wells finished unbeaten on 105 (108b), his 50 coming off 70 balls (4x4, 1x6) and the hundred, which contained nine fours and four maximums, was recorded off 105 deliveries.
Bush played a fine supporting role in gathering 43 not out from 54 balls. He scored a six, two and three, with the other 32 being collected in singles as he intelligently gave Wells the bulk of the strike.
It was Wells third hundred for the side in recent weeks. The two teams now meet in the Championship at the same ground, starting tomorrow morning at 11am.
