HALF centuries from Much Wenlock’s Andrew Tudor (70no) and Church Stretton’s Peter Lee (58no) counted for nothing as their sides were beaten in Division Three of the Shropshire League.

Wenlock lost by six wickets to visitors Cae Glas while Stretton went down by 49 runs at Acton Reynald.

In Division Two there was a 59-run defeat for Bishop’s Castle at Shrewsbury 3rds while Ludlow 3rds were beaten by 96 runs at Wheaton Aston even though openers Oli Boulton (47) and Harry Small (38) were both among the runs.

Corvedale also suffered a miserable afternoon, losing by nine wickets at Bridgnorth 3rds after being dismissed for 68.
