Shropshire name unchanged Trophy side for semi-final against Cheshire

The side features nine of the players which featured in the Unicorns Championship victory over Cheshire at Shifnal earlier this week, with Bridgnorth wicketkeeper Simon Gregory and Shrewsbury’s opening bowler Mike Barnard both returning.

Sunday’s semi-final starts at 11am and admission is free for spectators.
