Bishops Castle 134 all out lost to Shrewsbury IIIs 193-2 by 59 runs

BISHOPS Castle’s relegation fears deepened with a 59 run defeat at Shrewsbury IIIs.

Steve Froggatt carried his bat for the hosts with an unbeaten knock of 107 and joined by Marcus Cope (58) in steering the Shrews to 193-2 to defend.

Castle fell prey to Tom Atkins (4-28) in reply with Jonathan Price (26) and Richard Powell (19) top scoring while a loose bowling from the hosts yielded 41 extras.

However it was not enough with Aaron Lewis (13no) and Simon Green (14) only able to guide their side to 134 before their eventual demise in the 34th over.
