Charlie Home sets new Shropshire one-day record with seven-wicket haul

Charlie Home impressively set a new Shropshire one-day bowling record in helping the county to victory in last weekend’s Unicorns Knockout Trophy tie against Wales at Oswestry.

The Shifnal off-spinner claimed 7-52 from eight overs as Shropshire won by six wickets in their penultimate group game of the season.

His impressive figures meant the 18-year-old broke the record previously held by Whitchurch seamer Dan Bowen, set in May 2010, when he took 6-25 to inspire Shropshire to a five-wicket Trophy victory against Staffordshire at Audley.

Home, who is in his final year at Wrekin College and is member of Northamptonshire’s Academy, has played in all three group games for Shropshire in the Trophy this season.

The best bowling figures by a Minor Counties player in one-day cricket is 7-15 taken by Paul Bradshaw for Norfolk against Herefordshire in 2005.
