Shropshire v Cumbria 2007

Our senior team were due to play Cumbria today in the last of the three group stage matches. Back in 2007 when we met them, the game ended up as a draw in a thrilling finish. This was our second experience of the fearsome Lindal green which was very quick. Callum Wraight took to the green well though to win 5 in the first four, but only Alan Davidson added to that win in the middle four as we were 39 down off four. We used Wem USC as our home leg, and had the first 8 winners as we led by 57. But only two winners at the back meant we won by 52. This left Andy Moss last on the green with us being one down overall, and he managed to snatch a 21-20 win to get us a draw.
