This coming weekend Shropshire will play their fourth of nine fixtures in division four of the BDO Inter County Championships, a home tie against Pembrokeshire. Last season’s game on Pembrokeshire’s home turf finished with a 21-15 win for the hosts but this season Shropshire have had their best start since the 2015 – 2016 season when after the opening three games they had then also had one win, one draw and one defeat. Currently Shropshire are sixth in the table on 56 points while their opponents are some three places below them but just three points behind them.
A win would be a terrific boost for the home side and would consolidate their position their middle of the table position.
Lining up for Shropshire will be Men’s ‘A’:- Keith Allman, Dan Astbury, Jamie Barrowman, Steve Blewitt, Reece Cook-Lucas, Derek Coulson, Justin Evans, Sam Hamilton, Rob Henderson, Lee Hodgkiss, Andy Jervis, Martin Price, Men’s ‘B’:- Andi Chatter, Pete Eley, Chris Fox, Andy Gilbert, Luke Griffiths, Mike Hampson, Chris Hill, Clive Lucking, James Mansell, Richard Parker, Neville Quinton, Scott Towers, Reserves:- Colin Hill, Shane Knight, Darren Lane, Simon Pritchard, John Stanley, Adam Thackray, Women’s ‘A’:- Stephanie Clarke, Allison Gallagher, Julie Griffiths, Sue Lane, Michele Pritchard, Marie Riggs, Women’s ‘B’:- Trish Ball, Debbie Davies, Cally Jones, Rachael Mooney, Cheryl Owen, Caroline Powell, Reserves:- Jenna Ball, Sophie Fawcett, Tracey Knox, Lisa Wills.
