The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Webteam: August 2016
Regrettably Shropshire stormed back to the top of the Unicorns Minor Counties Championship Western Division table after dismissing Cheshire for 230 on the third and final day of the cricket at the Nantwich CC ground.
Shropshire started the final day at Nantwich on 132-4, a lead of 228 as they went in search of quick runs.
It was always going to be a tough call and Cheshire certainly had their work cut out to make inroads, particularly with the accuracy of the Shropshire attack.
Importantly, Tattenhall's very own 16 year old Henry Dobson, having been selected for the full Cheshire Men's 1st XI, gained tremendous bowling and batting experience and acquitted himself well — it is impossible to believe that Henry is still just 16 years of age!
Our thanks to Keith Titchener for the image of Henry Dobson.
