A dramatic week of cricket saw Shropshire U14s return from the prestigious Taunton Festival with the winners’ shield. It was the first time Shropshire has won this festival and the team found themselves pitched against teams from elite cricketing counties such as Middlesex, Gloucestershire and Derbyshire.

Coach Simon Gregory said, “It was a massive achievement and a phenomenal effort by all involved, one they will cherish for the rest of their promising cricket careers.”
Bridgnorth was well represented with Niall McAdam, Ben Parker and Joe Smallman who all attend Bridgnorth Endowed School in the team, as well as coach Simon Gregory who plays for Bridgnorth Cricket Club’s 1st XI.
