Shropshire’s NCCA Trophy match against Staffordshire to now be played at Oswestry Cricket Club

Shropshire’s NCCA Trophy match against Staffordshire on Sunday will now be played at Oswestry Cricket Club.

The fixture had been scheduled to be hosted by Wem Cricket Club, but has been switched to Oswestry owing to Covid-19 related issues.

Shropshire County Cricket Club secretary Richard Lees said: “Following a positive Covid test at Wem Cricket Club, a decision has been taken in the interests of the safety of all players, officials and spectators that the game be moved to another venue.

“Wem have made a decision that under the circumstances it would not be appropriate to host the game and have been very sensible about the whole matter.

“Wem would also like to thank Oswestry Cricket Club for stepping in at such short notice.

“Shropshire County Cricket Club is grateful to Oswestry Cricket Club for very kindly agreeing to host Sunday’s fixture.”
