If followed a frustrating two-day game between the same sides at Heath Road where rain denied Shropshire the chance of victory when they were on top.

Evans led the way with the bat with an unbeaten 67, while Darley chipped in with 22, as Shropshire batted first finished their 50 overs on 211-9.

He then took 6-23 with the ball from his ten overs to go with two wickets apiece for Luke Thornton and Joe Pattenden as Bedfordshire were dismissed for 119.

Much of the opening day of the two-day games was lost to the weather. Shropshire managed to bowl their opponents out for 117 in their first innings with Ross Hurdley taking 4-36 and Cameron Watson 2-16.

Shropshire replied with 201-7 before declaring after 34 overs with Josh Darley hitting 46, Will Standford-Davies 54, Evans a rapid 43 and Ben Lees 27.

They then had the visitors 104-6 in their second innings by stumps on the second day with Thornton taking 2-15, Ben Parker 2-13 and Evans 2-29. Shropshire’s consolation was an 11-point haul from the game.

Harrison Vaughan and Shaun Mendis each picked up three wickets as Shropshire Under 12s restricted Herefordshire to 126 at the Shrewsbury School Festival. But in the reply, the batsmen failed to get going as they were dismissed for 85.

In a second 10-ovres-a-side game, they batted first and finished their ten overs on73-4 with Lauren Kenvyn hitting an unbeaten 22, and then restricted their opponents to 27-3.

Shropshire’s Under 15 Girls

The Under 15 Girls were beaten in two T20 games against Nottinghamshire and Staffordshire at Shrewsbury CC.

In the game against Nottinghamshire, they fielded first and restricted their opponents to 112-2. In the reply, Eleanor Yeats hit 21, but they were bowled out for 86 off the final over of their innings.
