Jamie Allan is star performer in league season

The Shropshire league season is now complete and Shrewsbury Juniors ended in 4th position in the 3rd division, while Newport Juniors unfortunately finished in the bottom slot, although captain Jamie Allan scored a very impressive 7/9 despite having played most of the season on board 1.

Shrewsbury Juniors were bolstered by the addition of an adult for much of the season after they lost their fifth player Angelica Dean early on. The team got six wins and one draw from 12 matches and ended up only just behind the promotion slots. Notable performances for them included Matthew Best 5.5/10, Chris Lovejoy 5/9 and Henry Graham 5/8.

Both teams have a further chance to take some adult scalps in the forthcoming summer cups.
