Week 9 saw our 1st XI nearly beaten at bottom club Allscott ,whose team contained several St.Georges old boys. Batting first the total of 195/8 was made up of several contributions of 20 or so with nobody able to stick around and make a big score.Allscott came within 7 runs of victory before being bowled out, with the wickets shared amongst our bowlers. Despite the close shave we collected maximum points for third week in a row. The 2nd XI found themselves chasing 191 after Rob Bagshaw made 51 for Lilleshall. Liam Forrester and new boy Jack Lamb took 3 wickets apiece. A very good third wicket partnership between Matt Chesters(40) and Liam Buttery(48) put us on course and Lewis Sedgley (54no) and Jack Lamb(19no) saw us home to a 5 wicket win. At Calverhall the 3rd XI made 254/5 – Alex Dillon(47), Ross Wilmot(41) and Ryan Forrester(83), before 15 year old Richard Sambrook ripped through the host’s batting with figures of 5/7 to give us victory by 153 runs. Matthew Knight’s 82 was the backbone of Welshpool’s 172 all out against the 4th XI. In reply a good late order partnership between Joe Gaut(38) and Steve Pessall(33) brought us within 16 runs of a win before being bowled out.
