Bomere bring 1st XI down to earth

On the day that Newport deservedly confirmed themselves as champions, things did not go so well for our 1st XI at Bomere Heath. Although Chris Miller continued his good batting form with 48, and Josh Sedgley, Chris Waldron and Ben Byram chipped in, the Dragons total of 180 was clearly light. Lachlan Pember and Sam Bloor had no trouble in knocking the runs off for Bomere to give them an emphatic 8 wicket win. The 2nd XI put up 331/5 dec. at home to Welshpool with Ross Wilmot (100 no), Alex Dillon (96) and Jack Heath (68) in the runs. Welshpool managed to hold out for a draw, finishing on 131/9. The third XI were overpowered by a strong Wheaton Aston 1st XI. Chasing 189, we were skittled for 71, with Luke Blakemore taking 6/36 for the hosts. There was no 4th XI fixture due to Calverhall’s withdrawal from the league.

Fourth XI v Calverhall (Home) – Cancelled 

No Game, Calverhall have pulled out of Division 6, and the fourth team will be awarded average points this weekend.

Saved by the rain

The first XI’s batting didn’t really get going at home to Frankton in Week 18. Despite contributions from Gareth Hughes (41), Chris Waldron(27), Matt Chesters(31no) and Ben Byram(33), the total of 163/9 never really looked enough. Frankton were cruising it at 125/3 in 30 overs before the rain came. It didn’t stop, so that was that and Frankton had to go home disappointed. At Alberbury the 2nd XI bowled out the hosts for 128 with Chris Cousins, Sam Morgan and Aaron Musgrove sharing the wickets. The St.Georges innings started well enough, Avi Mathur grinding out 38 in his usual cautious fashion, but then came a collapse. Fortunately the experience of Mike Ross(38) and Chris Cousins(12) saw us through by 2 wickets, with Dave Pope still in the hutch. The 3rd XI match at home v Acton Reynald was reduced to 35 overs and St.Georges made 165/9 – Ross Wilmot(41), Bobby Gill(31), Jack Wilmot(27), Mike Parham(32) and restricted the visitors to 134/7 for a winning draw. A makeshift 4th XI had to chase 225 after Mike Lewis (111) and Elliot Mochan(76) had scored virtually all Ellesmere’s runs. Only Dom Musgrove(12), Jack Forrester(20) and Jack Underwood(22) made double figures as the Dragons were bowled out for 109.

Miller & Byram destroy Cound

In Week 17 the 1st team were put in at relegation battlers Cound. Chris Miller’s 125 together with good contributions from the other batsmen got the St.Georges total up to 321/9 before Ben Byram(6/64) and Neil Davies(3/29)  ripped into the Cound batting to bowl them out for 130. The 2nd XI again found themselves short of players and were bowled out for 174 against Cound 2nds, after Sean Parkes  and Avi Mathur had made a decent start. Cound got three extra overs to get the runs, and they won in the 52nd over. At Shrewsbury the 3rd XI bowled out the hosts for 112 with Chris Cousins taking 6/40 and Kev Myatt 4/12. The reply was straightforward with Alex Dillon, Joe Gregory and Allan Myatt getting the runs comfortably. An extremely young (with a couple of exceptions) 4th XI could not prevent Grove from rattling up 300/4. In reply St.Georges managed 155/8 for a draw with the star performer being Rachel Chesters with a very assured 47.
