Second win for Tilston in annual contest
The annual cricket match between St Mary’s Church, Tilston and St Edith’s Church, Shocklach took place on Tilston Playing Field.
Last year Tilston won for the first time in years and were hopeful of retaining the cup while Shocklach were equally determined to get it back.
It was a hard fought match which kept going despite the frequent showers ending with a resounding win for Tilston with a score of 128 - 87 net.
At the end of the game Jerry Mobbs, captain of Shocklach presented the cup back to Tilston Captain John Smith ready to display it in The Carden Arms.
The man of the match was Rupert Parry.
It was a good natured afternoon and thanks were given to the ladies who provided the afternoon tea and special thanks were given to the playing field committee, particularly Dave and Val Roberts, who ensured the pavilion and field were very well prepared for the game.
Thanks also went to Alan Ricketts who prepared the cricket pitch and umpired the game.
