Shropshire’s Development XI to face Lancashire Academy in two T20 matches on Friday

Shropshire’s Development XI will wrap up their season by playing two Twenty20 matches against Lancashire Academy at Wrekin College on Friday.

Left-arm spinner Sam Baugh, a regular member of the Bridgnorth team chasing promotion from the first division of the Birmingham League, will captain a 12-man squad.

Ian Roe, Shropshire’s Development XI coach, said: “It’s always good for the players to test themselves against a first-class county. It’s something they welcome and are looking forward to.

“It’s a nice fixture to end what’s been an enjoyable season. The side has been well led by Sam Baugh, who has done a very good job as captain and reads the game well.”

He added his thanks to Dave Nock for supporting him in a coaching role during a season which has also seen the Shropshire Development XI play games against Shrewsbury School, Northamptonshire under-19s and Cheshire’s Development XI.
