Oswestry duo ruled out of Championship match at Herefordshire


Shropshire make two changes from the side which opened the Unicorns Championship season by beating Cheshire for their next three-day match against Herefordshire.

Bridgnorth wicketkeeper Simon Gregory and Shifnal paceman Alex Wyatt, pictured, now recovered from a shoulder injury, both return after missing the 166 run victory at Shifnal.

They come in for Oswestry duo Robbie Clarke, injured in last weekend’s Unicorns Trophy semi-final defeat against Cheshire, and Warrick Fynn, who is unavailable.

The match with Herefordshire gets under way at Eastnor on Sunday.

Just like Shropshire, Herefordshire also opened with a win in their opening Championship match of the Western Division season, beating Cornwall by 137 runs at Colwall.

Shropshire: Steve Leach (Shifnal, captain), Omar Ali (C&R Hawks), Will Parton (Shrewsbury), Alexei Kervezee (Halesowen), Ross Aucott (Shifnal), Ryan Lockley (Bridgnorth), Simon Gregory (Bridgnorth), Sam Whitney (Bridgnorth), Gurjit Sandhu (Twickenham), Alex Wyatt (Shifnal), Jack Twigger (Wellington).
