U15s Reach County Final

1 week ago By David Ross

Wellington's youngsters overcame Knockin to book their place in the Shropshire Cup final.

By Steve Pitchford

Having lost the toss and asked to field at Knockin, the U15s fielded exceptionally well and held some good catches. After a solid start from Knockin, Wellington managed to keep the opposition to 118-5 off 20 overs. Harrison Peel-Jones (2-16 off 4 overs) and Patrick Ward-Clayton (3-18 off 4 overs) were the pick of the bowlers.

In reply the opening partnership of Luke Goring and Patrick Ward-Clayton commanded the opposition bowlers. Goring hit the sixes off one over before having to retire unbeaten on 50 - an excellent knock. Opening partner Ward-Clayton finished 46* as the U15s reached 120-1 off just 12.5 overs.

They now go on to final where they will play the winners of Bridgnorth or Wem.
