Saxonby Shrews Eve Cricket league play off final 3

Batting first ‘Hoppers openers Darren Bullock and Joe Yapp raced away to 74-0 inside ten overs but quick wickets halted their progress until Tom Boyd and Ed Davis took their 20-over total to a competitive 160-6. For Prees, the best bowler was John Groom (3-22).

Prees in reply, made steadty progress, with opener Nick Ball (39) and the impressive Kevin Batkin (74) putting on 95 for the second wicket to set up an exciting finish, with Prees needing 24 runs to win from the last two overs.

It eventually came down  to the last ball of the match with Prees skipper Pete Richards just managing a scampered single to bring the scores level, the north Shropshire side progressing by virtue of losing fewer wickets.

The second semi was never likely to be able to deliver the same drama and Cound’s young side were always up against it after losing the prolific Graham Trow, their experienced opener, for just six.

Jack Case, 14, played well for 16, but wickets fell at regular intervals with Mattie Cohen pulling off three catches. Rich Jarrett top scored with 38 as Cound totalled 102-9.

Wem openers Matt Cohen (31no) and Chris Peel (33) put on 81 for the first wicket as Cound toiled in the field. The hosts passed their modest total with ease, one wicket down in the 12th over to set up an all north Shropshire final.

Wem won the toss and chose to field. Prees were unable to repeat their batting exploits from earlier as they laboured to 97-8, Batkin making 19 against some accurate bowling headed by James Astley who claimed 2-9 from his four overs. Cohen (37no) and Peel again made a dominant start, putting on 77 for the first wicket, and it was left to Josh Gough to hit the winning runs just as a brief shower threatened to extend the day.

The man of the match was awarded to James Astley for his excellent bowling spell.

A ‘guess the score’ competition was also held. Hannah Taylor won a hamper donated by the Mid Counties Cooperative in Wem and £250 was raised towards local charity The Shropshire Housing Alliance.

The company has now signed a three year deal and the competition will be known as the Saxonby Shrewsbury & District Evening Cricket League from 2012.  Director James Wood, whose own team The Anchor secured a respectable mid-table finish in division seven, said: “It’s been a great season. The league sponsorship has proved to be very successful for us and The Anchor knocked up a few notable wins against some tough opposition. Although there is a variable standard of ability across the divisions the commitment from all players involved has been fantastic and we hope our continued support for the league will encourage more people to play.”
