Weekly Round-Up: 20th May

Weekend Summary

Wellington were given the run-around by Shifnal overseas Ethan Jamieson, who hit a century to condemn them to a six-wicket defeat at Priorslee Road. However, we did come out on top in the meeting of the 2nd XIs of the two clubs, edging a close rain-affected draw. Elsewhere, the 3rds were outsclassed in their contest with Quatt II, whilst the 4ths responded well after a bad result in the previous week but were still defeated at Lilleshall II. On Sunday, the 5th were involved in a thriller against Shelton III, losing by just six runs. Meanwhile, the 1st XI won convincing at Worfield in the first round of the BDPCL Cup, maintaining their T20 form of 2023!
