Saturday Sensation

Updated: 1 day ago

On Saturday, in blistering sunshine, the First XI hosted Emsworth at the Rec.

Having won the toss and elected to bat first, the Shrews piled on 372-6 in their 45 overs, thanks to brilliant centuries from Rikki Clarke (169) and Chris Brewer (117).

In response, Emsworth reached 206 before being bowled out, their innings closing in the 42nd over. Shaun Little (4-29) was the pick of the bowlers, with Clarke (2-22) and Will Sleeman (2-2) also picking up a brace of wickets each.

By taking maximum points, the side remain in second place in Division 2, just a single point behind Redlynch and Hale. Next week sees a trip to another highflying side in Bishops Waltham.
