Runs were hard to come by as Newtown’s up and down season continued at the weekend with a defeat at home to Premier League champions-elect Whitchurch.

John Anthony and Jack Morris took three wickets apiece as Newtown restricted the league leaders to a get-able 170-8. But the batsmen couldn’t maintain a challenge and were whittled out for 97 with only three players reaching double figures.

Welshpool are finishing their Division One season with a flourish after toppling title chasing Cound in a rain affected game.

With their target revised down to 206 from 41 overs, Tom Anderson struck a match winning unbeaten 101 to guide Pool home in the 38th over. Patrick Davies supported with 41.

The win puts Welshpool in a comfortable sixth spot ahead of their final game against Alberbury.

But it was another tough day at the crease for out-of-sorts Montgomery who suffered a nine-wicket defeat at Condover.

After being put into bat, Monty struggled to 103 all out which could have been a lot worse if Keith Griffiths hadn’t knocked an unbeaten 29 coming in at 10. The hosts cruised home in the 24th over.

Guilsfield ended their Division Four season in a respectable fifth following defeat against Bridgnorth.
