TOM Gleghorn hit a superb unbeaten century to help Barby secure a Warwickshire League Division One winning draw at home against Warwick on Saturday.
Gleghorn smashed 115 off 107 balls (nine fours and six sixes) in the rain affected contest before Stev Sipanovic went on to shine with the ball when it was Barby's turn to field, taking 4-12.
Having decided to bat first, Barby made a slow start as they reached 70-2 after 25 overs.
A steady acceleration followed though with Gleghorn leading the way, supported by Rob Field who finished on 36no as Barby made 191-4.
Marc Passey was the pick of the visitors' attack, taking 2-27.
Warwick never really threatened Barby's total as wickets fell at regular intervals, but not regularly enough for the home side to force victory.
Warwick finished on 95-7 from their 50 overs with Will Sinclair (2-21) and David Watson (1-27) also striking.
THERE was more success on Sunday as Barby won by 49-runs at Isham in the second round of the National Village Cup.
The afternoon did not get off to the best of the starts for Barby as they fell to 14-4 having chosen to bat first.
