WEM Cricket Club hosts a T20 county clash on Monday.

Shropshire face a busy bank holiday weekend of T20 cricket as they hope to get their National Counties Cricket Association season under way.

The wet weather meant both of Shropshire’s opening games of the season against Cheshire at Shifnal Cricket Club were abandoned last weekend.

The county are now preparing to play two T20 matches against Staffordshire at Leek Cricket Club on Sunday which will be quickly followed by two more T20 contests against Cumbria at Wem Cricket Club on Monday.


The first games on both days start at 11am, with a second fixture to be played at around 2.30pm.

Ed Home, Shropshire’s head of cricket, said:  "I’ve got lots of happy memories of playing cricket at Wem, a great club, and every time Shropshire go there we are always very well catered for. The facilities and ground are always excellent.

"We’re happy with the side we have for both games and, while we know that both Staffordshire and Cumbria are good teams, we are looking forward to playing positively."

Admission is free for spectators attending the Cumbria match at Wem.

The club’s main car park is for players and officials only, with parking for spectators available via Church Lane.
