ISCOYD and Fenns Bank bowed out of the Meadons SCCL Challenge 100 in Shelton on Sunday.

Iscoyd joined Chelmarsh, Column and Forton in the semi-finals day.
Bank fell to a 41 run defeat in the semi-finals as Chelmarsh went on to lift the silverware.

Alex Starr (33), Tom Hill (24), Connor Glendinning (22) and Matt Evans (22no) guided Chelmarsh to 136-6 to defend with Duncan Wright (3-15) the pick of the attack.

Kieran Faulkner (24no) led Bank’s reply with support from Tom Lea (19), Rhyan Jones (15) and Stuart Mottershead (13) but Elliot Ward (3-9), Scott Randall (2-26), Connor Glendinning (2-18) and Sam Best (2-9) ensured their close on 100-9.


The Shropshire County Cricket League (SCCL) have been running their 100 Competitions for the last three years with premier and first division clubs entering the Premier 100 and the remaining clubs entering the Challenge 100 with both competitions being sponsored this season by Meadons Insurance Brokers in Market Drayton.

Both competitions have produced several weeks of thrilling action with Wellington CC winning the Meadons Premier competition back in July following victory over Wem CC by six runs in an exciting final.

A club spokesman said: “As a bottom half division five club it was already a success in beating two second division clubs to make it to finals day and we were delighted in our performance in giving second division leaders and eventual winners Chelmarsh a good game.

“Special mention to Tom Lea who averaged 99 with the bat and took nine wickets on our run to the semi finals."

Meadons, which provides all types of commercial and private insurance, also specialises in providing cover to cricket clubs, handling policies for more than 500 cricket clubs countrywide.

Meadons manager Lesley Prior said: “What an exciting few weeks of cricket it has been and a truly thrilling finals day.

“It was our first year sponsoring the competition and we found it a very positive experience.

“Cricket fans or not, you can’t help being swept up by the buzz it creates and the feel-good factor as communities join forces to cheer on their sides. Congratulations to the winners and everyone involved.”
