Condover 2XI vs Cae Glas 2XI Match Report

20th June 2021

The 19th of June saw Condover 2nds host Cae Glas 2nds looking to get back to winning ways after defeat the previous week.

Condover won the toss and elected to field first and set about this task with a new opening bowling attack of Thomas Hughes & Anthony Smith. The two young quick bowlers took to their roles like veterans and kept the Cae Glas batsmen tied down and after their opening spell the opposition batsmen had reached 30 runs for the loss of no wickets.

The change of bowling brought instant results when Graeme Hughes removed the off stump which was last seen cartwheeling down the A49 towards Shrewsbury. After the breakthrough, wickets started to tumble at regular intervals with Thomas Hughes taking 1 wicket, Anthony Smith 2 wickets and Tom Farrow also taking 1 wicket.

With exceptional fielding by Brad Burnett-Thomas, Ben Brooks and senior cricket debutant Finn Lock the Cae Glas team finished on 7-145.

The Condover reply looked like it had got off to a shaky start when the sound of the ball hitting the bails echoed around the ground with young Tom Farrow on 0. Somehow the bails didn’t fall and Tom and his opening partner Andy Brooks then proceeded to knock off the runs with Tom Farrow hitting a 4 to win the game and in the process bringing up his maiden senior 50 not out and Andy finishing on 73 not out.

A fantastic result which was enjoyed by all especially the younger members of the team who all contributed in the result.
