The 1st xi entertained Wroxeter Grove looking to bounce back after last weeks disappointing opening reverse against Ludlow.

 

Invited to bat first after losing the toss at a picturesque BCG, the 1st xi were immediately under the cosh, losing wickets at regular intervals. The returning Sam Bloor (19), Henry Dawson (17) and Chris Stevens (11) were the only batsmen to get into double figures as the 1st xi were shot out for 78, 4 batsmen failing to trouble the scorers at all.

 

15 overs were to be bowled before tea and close-season recruit Tom Ellis started well taking the two openers cheaply before Wroxeter Grove moved on to 50 for 2. Despite a flurry of wickets and a mini collapse, Wroxeter Grove passed the target of 79 with the loss of 6 wickets, despite the best efforts of Chris Stevens (3 for 32) and Ellis (2 for 11).

 

Wroxeter Grove took away 20 points with the 1st xi only picking up a disappointing 3.
