CRICKET NOTES- Crle^'t Hourlshes at Newtown. In most towns of the size of this there is often great difficulty in securing one good eleven, but here two good teams can be placed on the field at any time. The Otters- poo' team found this out last week on their visit. S.W.W. drahhed them fairly but the Newtown team gave ri,et,i even a sounder beating. The batting of the home team was very regular, no less than six getting well into double figures. W. E. Prycc- Jonea nd W. F. Richards started capitally well fur Newtown. Both played as well as evei they (lid, and to r.iii'ir credit be it said. both seem as enthusi- astic ris of old. W. R. Wood found the bowling to his liking and scored 43 in his best style. C. Parry carried his bat out for 20, and he got them well. Charlie is becoming quice a first rate cricketer and be is without doubt one of the best bowlers in the county. The sooru of 170 proved too much for the visiters. They began fairly well. E. Iiecs21 (good old <tr'i'spool). W.J. Sprott 11 and J. Wilson 14, showing good form, bnt the others fared so badly a.gaill;, the army of bowlers on the other side that the total was only 63, and Newtown won by no less than 102. A capital contest was tlie result of the meeting between Welshpool and R.W.W. on the ground of the latter. Both teams were well represented and the fight was a keen and interesting one. The home team made 87. Ev. Rees was top scorer with a well played 21, and W. R. Wood, C. Parry and A. Marston got double figures, while all scored a few. Hart was in rare bowling form and took 6 wickets for 15. Welshpool started badly, Tallis being run out for 1. Harrison and Hart made a short stand, and Worth with 10 and L. Jones 18 made things -took promising for the visitors, but two more good men were run out. and though Makepeace played exceedingly well for 11 not out, the innings fell short of R.W.W. by 11 runs. The game was a very pleasant one and with just enough excitement to be refreshing. When the Welshpool men arrived at home there was a quiet smoker" at the Oak, and a beautiful bat suitably inscribed was presented to R. F. Parry, who has left the Estate Office for an appointment in Hampshire. The bat will remind Mr Parry of the m,ny happy days he bas spent "with the Welshpool Cricket team. Chirburv. though assisted by Chase Davies and H. Hibbott, were no match for Montgomery on Saturday. C. Williams and A. Eaton were in grand bowling form and got rid of the village team for 28 runs. Barker 11 and W. H. Langford 9 played well but the others seemed powerless against it. C. Williams took four wickets for 12 and A. laton took four wickets for 13. The innings of Iont- gomery reached 89. E. Jones carried his bat for a good and useful score of 23. Harris had a merry inninsrs of 15, and W. Fitzhuirh got a dozen. Agairis: the other bowling of the team Chirbury made 52 in the second innings. The analysis of W. Fitz- hugh i- a line one -4 overs, 5 wickets, 4 runs. Another good bowling performance took place at Oswestry on Saturday when Ellesmere and Oswes- trv met Ellesmere took first innings and were dismissed for 47, F. Brown with 16 not out alone doing well. Codield took five wickets for eight r,ans. Oswestry made such a sorry start that at one time even this smail score seemed to trouble them. When the captain and F. J. Gough faced each other they quickly made their supporters happv. Both played well. Gough's 31 following on'his previous gccd work stamps him as the most consistent batsman in the team. Good form has been displayed by the Oswestry Grammar School in their late matches, the bowling of Parry and Owen being very deadly. In the match against Arnold House, Chester, Parry took all the wickets except one for very few runs. This was a peculiar match. A. Malkin 11, H. F. Thomp- son 10, with extras scored 27 out of a total of 32. The other nine players did not give the opposition mnch leather hunting. Oswestry scored 85. Trevor 22. Harry 17, Edwards 12, and Mason 10 did well with their bat. The second victory was a better one even than this as the opponents, Ellesmere College XI., were much stronger. Owen and Parry bowled splendidly and got rid of a good batting team for 41. The Grammar School scored 75, Mason 15, T. W. A. Jones 11 not out, and T. Ll. Harry 21 being top scorers. The return with Ellesmere College on Wednesday was a grand match, the bowling on both sides being excellent. The College won by 13 runs. scoring 60 to 47. Penn bowled in his best form. He commenced with taking two wickets with his first two balls and altogether got eight for 15. Owen and Parry also bowled well. For quick scoring the match between Wem and .7:1 Salop (really Anthony v Salop) gives us the best example lately seen in the district, but of a total of 149. W. Anthony by batting of the most brilliant description scored 115 not out, and carried his bat right "through the innings. As Shropshire only made 99, Anthony bad the pleasure of beating the County off his own bat. In addition to his good batting he met with fair success as a bowler. The once old Whittington player, G. Galloway, took a team to Park Hall, on Saturday, and had the pleasure of taking down the Park Hall men on their own ground. The innings of Park Hall amounting to the fair number of 136 runs, Clapp, 36, and Brooklield, 34, doing best with the bat; Clapp's career closed with a smart catch by G. Galloway. The visitors were in no wise daunted by having to face this large score, but they started badly, and the first two men were bowled by Baguley before scoring. Beech and Purgold added 17 and 18 respectively and brightened the hopes of the visitors, but it was left to Galloway and J. C. Jones, to settle matters. The latter played steadily for his good score of 68, while G. i allowav hit away in his best arm tor 54. The total reached 186 on 50 on. Cliff and Baguley bowled well for their respective sides. iianks to a tine not out innings of 30 by Mr tn ir' c -S School defeated Wrexham Wel- come by 5o to 38. Hughes and Home bowled well for the winners, while Simon and Mitchell were equally successful for their side I-lanyn-iynech were only able to place a very weaK side m the field against Knockin. The latter had a good team, and on winning the toss put Llanymynech in. Pugh and Rees "started steadilv and scored 24 for the first wicket. Flick scored 4. f other batsmen failed before the goodfowling of Welsham, Jones, and Eyton. Pugh batted steadily and well for 37 and made some good cuts and leg hits fr>»- i,;c, 1 The total reached 70, and only about an hour re- mamed for play. The bowling of Morris was good for the visitors and run-getting- difficult. Dr Mortis played very well for 11 not out, and so did R. Evton for 10. Score 37 for four wickets.—Mrs Griflitns kindly provided refreshments for both teams, and on the motion of the captain of the Llanymynech club. and seconded by the jovial umpire—Major Conelly-a hearty vote < thanks was accorded to this good lady and the other ladies assisting for their kindness. In first class racket the feature of the week has been big scoring uy Sugg, Ranjitsinghji and others. Sugg's innings of 2 was a brilliant display, and was all the more valuable for the pickle his side were in when he removed danger. Yorkshire have had three slaps at the Colonists, but have failed each time to score a win. The Australians are a good lot notwithstanding their failure in the test match, and it will be no surprise if they do well in the next encounter. Storer's work in scoring 342 for once out will take some beating even in this year of heavy scor- ing, and he is now in the first dozen batsmen with the fine average of 42'12, and a total of 810 runs.
