Burghill were bowled out for 217 after opting to bat with Owen Morgan (59) and Ben Parkinson (61) top scoring for the visitors.

Groves (3-43), Patrick O’Driscoll (2-38) and Cameron Blakey (2-51) shared the wickets.

In reply Nomads slumped to 90-5 but the sixth-wicket partnership between Groves (50) and Stephen Emson (30) pushed the score to 170 before the hosts finished on 218-8.

Nomads make the trip to Bewdley on Saturday.
