Wellington’s fifth team play in Division Two of the Shropshire County Cricket Sunday League. They finished fourth in their division in the 2019 season and are looking to consolidate and improve throughout 2020.

Wellington’s lower teams (third to fifth) are often times used to help young players find their feet and we hope that many will then kick on through the teams in the following seasons.

The fifth team is led by the Club Chairman Steve Oliver who has been Fifth XI Captain since 2019 (having formerly been Fourth XI Captain and Sixth XI Captain). Steve can be contacted by email at steve.oliver@wellingtoncc.co.uk or by phone on 07831 708771.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions during the 2020 season, the SCCL have had to establish an alternative season for 2020. For information on how this has been structured please see the SCCL website: http://www.shropshirecricketleague.co.uk/news/all-divisional-groupings-2020-278 

All Fifth XI 2020 matches start at 12pm, 80 over max and Win/Lose Format

Over the first seven Sundays, each team will play all others on an arbitrary H/A basis. The groups will then split into top-half, bottom-half. The top halves will then play return fixtures against each other, ditto bottom halves, with reversed venues. Notice of details will be given for these three final weeks. The split after seven weeks will be definitive, with top-halves guaranteed top-four finishes. This is the same system used in Scottish football.
