Shrewsbury School

Shropshire’s Academy team play their opening match of the season this coming Monday, May 13, a Twenty20 fixture away to Shrewsbury School’s first team.

Matt Kenvyn will captain the Academy side in a match starting at 5.30pm.

Academy coach Ed Ashlin said: “We’ve gone with a slightly younger side with a few of our Shropshire under-18s selected.

“This is a good opportunity for them against a strong Shrewsbury School team.

“It’s another good chance for the players to play a competitive early-season fixture.”

Shropshire Academy: Seb Scott (Bridgnorth), Finley Jones (Shrewsbury), Matt Kenvyn (Bagnall Norton, captain), Morgan Ward (Shifnal), Charlie Walker (Wombourne), Dax Hardman (Shifnal), Griff Davies (Newtown), Jacob Binnersley (Sentinel), Morgan Yorke (Newtown), Alex Heath (Whitchurch), Hamza Bhatti (Madeley).
