OFFENHAM, Eckington, Evesham Bengeworth and Cropthorne progressed from the Wychavon Parish Games’ skittles competition’s first round.

As neither North and Middle Littleton nor Hinton and Aston Somerville turned up to play, Evesham North, who beat Wyre Piddle in the first round, went straight through to the quarter-finals.

The cross-country event takes place next Monday at Pershore High School.
