Hey – a new photo of Ben just to ring the changes!!

Cae Glas slipped to defeat at home to Welshpool.

Losing the toss, saw  Glas inserted who struggled on a slow pitch to break free of the visitors’ shackles. Ben Hipkiss stroked a patient 52 with the rest of the top order unable to push on as they closed on 135-6.  R. Andersn was the pick of the Welshpool bowling a fine spell taking 3-38.
The Welshpool reply was initially thwarted with some tight bowling from the Glas opening attack, sadly no reward came their way as ‘Pool built carefully through a fine innings of 65 not out from skipper Paul Chapman. Late assistance cane from Tom Anderson who chipped in with 26 not out as Welshpool eased past the required total for the loss of just 3 wickets.

Cae Glas are now facing a major battle to retain their place in division two as relegation looms large!
