Wins for Monty, Pool and Guilsfield

Created on 07/07/2021 @ 14:31


Joe Monk took 5-16 as Newtown picked up their third win on the bounce to mount a mid-season charge for promotion in Henshalls Shropshire League Division One.

Monk’s devastating spell reduced Cound to 74 all out, but it took Newtown six wickets to reach victory with Sam Cooke steadying the ship with an unbeaten 20. The win takes Newtown up to fourth.

A tremendous all-round display saw Montgomery make short work of title-chasing Chelmarsh in Division One.

Aaron Ruff-Cock was unbeaten on 82 and Charles Clinton made 48 as Montgomery made their way to 203-5 from 30 overs after being asked to bat first.

In reply, four bowlers took two wickets as the visitors were restricted to 116-9. The win moves Montgomery up to seventh.

Welshpool jumped up to seventh in Division Three with a timely victory at Newport II.

Pat Davies (52), Nick Davies (49) and Mat McWhinnie (35no from 15 balls) propelled Welshpool to 217-8 from their allotted 30, before restricting the hosts to 159-8. McWhinnie and Pat Davies took three wickets apiece.

Another fine batting performance ensured Guilsfield & Llandrinio remain top of Division Five at the halfway stage against fellow promotion seekers Wellington IV at the village’s LHG Oval.

A century from Matt Pitchford guided Wellington to 154-4 from 25 overs, before David Williams (50no), Dan Brown (48no from 26 balls) and Sam Griffiths (42) saw them home in the 22nd over for the loss of just one wicket.

Newtown II couldn’t post enough runs as their 151-8 from 30 overs was comfortably reached by Column.

Llanidloes suffered a blow to their promotion hopes with a heavy defeat at Division Six leaders Allscott Heath II, who set 247-6 from 40 overs thanks to an unbeaten 129 from Steve White.

Llanidloes knew they had to score fast but suffered a mid-order collapse to end well short on 79 all out.

Montgomery II came up short in their chase for St George III’s 184-9, finishing on 151-9 despite the best efforts of Joe Haycock (35) and Alex Haycock (47).

Welshpool II’s Division Seven match with Quatt III was a victim of the weather.
