Wellington 1st XI completed their regular season by registering their ninth win in the Mike Robinson group of the SCCL Premier Division. They chased down 210 to win at Sentinel in their final match – a welcome confidence boost ahead of next week’s Grand Final against Quatt at Worfield CC. The hosts enjoyed a big opening stand between Ed Ashlin (35) and Steven Gray (46) but Wellington came back into the game as they picked up wickets late in the innings. Adithya Manigandan (2-32) and Tom Ellis (3-42) – who picked up key man Jamie Wear for 59 – led the fightback for the visitors as the Shrewsbury side finished on 210-7. Wellington flew out of the gates thanks to Mat Batkin (57) and Tom Masters (33), but their progress was checked by the loss of middle-order wickets. However, James Flynn (30*) steadied the ship and completed the win with five balls to spare and five wickets in the shed.
