Dan Brown: angel and demon

Rain and the football season kick off failed to dampen the local Shropshire Cricket League action which still managed to shine on Saturday.
While Montgomery’s much anticipated First Division derby with Welshpool fell victim to the weather, their second string was looking to push on for the promotion places in Division Four at leaders Corvedale.
Electing to bowl first, Montgomery struggled to keep things tight with Corvedale setting a decent target of 196-6 off their reduced 35 overs. Tom Wilkinson’s three wickets came at a cost of 59 runs as Corvedale’s Ian Simmonds remained unbeaten on 74.
But a gritty 31 from John Barker frustrated the hosts who were unable to bowl the visitors out with them finishing on 96-8.
In Division Six, a cracking 65 from youngster Dan Brown set the pace for Guilsfield who notched up a decent looking 153-7 at Cae Glas II. James Grieve added 33 and Matt Jones 21.
But it became a drab affair with the hosts deciding to bat out their overs following early losses for a dreary 70-7. Brown’s demon pace brought a pair of wickets but it was not enough to break through. Jones played his part well with four wickets but the Oswestry side set out their stall and thwarted the visitors who remain in the top two.
