2nd xi vs Pontesbury



After going for the whole of the first half of the 2014 season unbeaten, the 2nd xi headed to Pontesbury looking to maintain the good form.


Pontesbury were inserted and batted well to make 190 for 2 from their 45 overs including 67* from Robbie Hartshorn whilst the wickets were shared between youngster Henry Preece and Adam James, making his debut in the 2nd xi before making his debut for the Shropshire Disabled team at Warwickshire on the Sunday.


In reply, the 2nd xi lost Andrew Gittins early, but runs from skipper Stuart Simpson (48) and Paul Bolland kept the 2nd xi in the hunt. A late flurry of wickets left the 2nd xi 6 wickets down, but Bolland (67*) saw the team get over the line chasing down 191 with only 3 balls remaining. James Plant was also in the runs with 29 whilst there were wickets for the home side from Lawrence Evans (3-39).


Another 20 points gives the 2nd xi their 10th win of the season as they remain top of the Shropshire Reserve Division 2 table for 2014. The unbeaten run has also been noticed by online cricket website Cricket World who have put it in their Club Performances of the week. You can vote for the 2nd xi by clicking here.
