It may have taken until late July for the Henshalls Shropshire County Cricket League to get underway, but for Wellington the wait was certainly worth it. Spectators at Whitchurch’s Heath Road ground witnessed a remarkable come-back from Wendell Wagner’s 1st XI side who appeared down-and-out at 29-6 in the first innings. From there, the home team might understandably have expected a comfortable victory to ensue, but opener Tom Masters had other ideas. Having watched the wickets tumble at the other end, he forged partnerships with two debutants in Tom Ellis (48) and Ben Byram (51) as Wellington counter-attacked in style. Masters carried his bat for an unbeaten 64, helping move his side beyond respectability and towards an imposing 40-over total of 191-8. Ellis (2-26) claimed the much-prized wicket of Maisam Hasnain to put his side on the front foot in the second issues. Continued pressure from fellow seamers Sam Bloor (2-20) and Wendell Wagner (2-30) ensured that Whitchurch stayed at arm’s length throughout the chase. The hosts ended up on 165-8 as Wellington kicked their season off with the most unlikely of victories.
