LUDLOW CC endured an up-and-down Bank Holiday double header in the shortened Shropshire League summer campaign. On Saturday, super bowling from Josh Williams (3-16), Zach White (2-19), Luke Miles (2-19) and Louis Watkins (2-24) helped Ludlow defend 134-8 as they skittled Allscott Heath for 117. But in the reverse fixture on Monday, Allscott (171-5) chased down Ludlow’s 170-8 despite Will Sparrow’s 3-30. Elsewhere, Ludlow seconds are bottom of East and South Division Two after a five-wicket loss at St George’ seconds. Harry Small (37) top-scored in Ludlow’s 141-9 but opener Matthew Conniffe’s unbeaten 83 helped St George’s canter home at 142-5. Bishops Castle won an amazing low-scoring thriller in the Wales and West Division. Skittled for 84, Castle responded by dismissing hosts Montgomery for 63 as Thomas Moulder (3-6), Simon Palmer (2-7) and Caitlin Perry (2-11) shone. Winless Church Stretton remain bottom of South Central as they fell well short of Column’s 228-7 on 127 despite Hamran Khalid’s 57. In the Worcestershire League, Cleobury Mortimer stay second in Shield Group D after battering Highley by 210 runs. Tenbury Wells are second in Plate Group D after a seven-wicket win at Droitwich Spa thirds – they restricted Spa to 130-7 before Andrew Adams (66no) and Tom Gloster (43) led Tenbury home.
