2nd xi vs Allscott


After wrapping up the Shropshire Cricket League Reserve Division 1 the previous weekend, the 2nd xi headed home to finish the 2014 season at home to Allscott, themselves needing a few points to make sure they were in the same league for 2015.


The 2nd xi might have been having a hangover from the previous weeks’ celebrations as they were shot out for just 53 finding the going very tough. Daniel Brentnall made the most of the favourable conditions taking 4 for 18 from 14 overs whilst there were 2 wickets apiece for Jack Mayhew, Ali Raza and Matthew Brasenell. Paul Bolland (11) and Stuart Simson (10) were the only 2nd xi batsmen to get into double figures.


Wickets would be the only way to get anything out of the game for the 2nd xi, however, Allscott got over the winning line by 7 wickets with Mark Goodridge (16) and Jack Mayhew (12*) getting them over the winning line.


A sad end to a phenomenal season for the 2nd xi as they win the Shropshire Cricket League Reserve Division 1 and look forward to a season in the top flight of the reserve league in 2015. Congratulations to everyone involved and to captain Stuart Simpson.
