Sat 4 August, Much Wenlock v Cae Glas

It was another successful weekend for Cae Glas as both sides won their respective fixtures against Much Wenlock.

The firsts had the greater challenge, as the home side posted a creditable 174 for 5 in their 40 overs, thanks largely to a rather fortuitous 70 from Alan Tudor. It could have been a far bigger total apart from a tight last 10 overs from the visitors which kept the score below the predicted 200. Pick of the Cae Glas attack were Nathan Bartram with 2 for 29 and Nick Broadbent with 2 for 46.

In reply, Cae Glas got off to a flyer, scoring 26 in the first 2 overs, and a third wicket partnership of 40 from Ian Holgate and George Candler accumulated runs steadily and set the pattern for the innigs. When Holgate was out for 28, Gaz Edgerton continued the good work, putting on 61 with Candler before he too was dismissed for 18.

Meanwhile George Candler was joined by skipper Pete Bowyer, and when Candler was eventually dismissed for a chanceless 54, it was Bowyer who saw the team home with 21 not out to seal welcome back to back victories in the 31st over.
Cae Glas will be looking to make it 3 on the bounce when they visit struggling St Georges in Telford next weekend.
