Weather claimed the games involving Welshpool, Newtown II and Montgomery II but it was a disappointing day for local clubs in the Henshalls Shropshire League on Saturday.

Newtown bowled themselves into a winning position in Division One, but their batting collapsed to suffer a disappointing defeat at Shrewsbury II.

Dave Laird (4-16) and Joe Monk (3-24) destroyed Shrewsbury for just 106 runs, but it was definitely a bowlers’ track as Newtown were dismissed for 55.

Montgomery failed to defend 192 at Worfield in Division Two, with Aaron Ruff-cock (43), Rob Bennett (35) and Tim Davies (30), among the runs.

Despite early losses, Worfield cruised home in the 37th over for the loss of five wickets.

Welshpool’s match was cancelled and Guilsfield were without a fixture in Division Six.

The only other match to be held involved Welshpool II who were beaten at Lilleshall III after being bowled out for 113 in Division Eight.
