Senior County vs. Cumbria Preview

Shropshire have one more hurdle to negotiate if they are to qualify for the Semi Finals of the BCGBA Senior County. We have beaten Yorkshire and North Lancs & Fylde and now take on winless Cumbria. We have turned to a new green in Hanmer to try it out, after being unlucky back in 2013 when we played Yorkshire there in the pouring rain. Cumbria take us to Burton-in-Kendal to try and help get their first win of the campaign. Selector Mark Shore says "We couldn't be happier with the first two games we have played but it will all be for nothing if we don't get the job done Sunday. We cannot underestimate our opponents just because we have a 100% record and they have lost both of their games. The home leg on a difficult Hanmer green should provide us with a platform to build a big lead. We have every faith in the men selected to push Shropshire into the semi finals. As much support for the teams will be greatly appreciated and there are places left on the coach if supporters wish to travel to Cumbria."
