2017 Henshalls SCCL Premier Division Champions - Whitchurch CC

The SCCL would like to congratulate Whitchurch CC 1st XI on becoming the Henshalls Shropshire County Cricket League Premier Division Champions for 2017 - It has been a remarkable season with Whitchurch finishing rock bottom of the Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League Division 3 in 2016 to come back with such a bang in 2017! They have now gained promotion back to the BDPCL, well done Whitchurch! 

They were pushed all season by the top 6 teams, however Ludlow CC 1st XI pushed them the hardest, the league was in Whitchurch's hands 3 weeks ago when the two sides met, Whitchurch were ahead by 14 points, the match was rain affected with a normal 100 over match being reduced to a 50 over match. Whitchurch batted first and put on 179/9 in their 25 overs, this proved to be enough with Ludlow making 168/8 from their 25 overs. The winning draw result meant that going into the final 2 weeks, Whitchurch had a 17 point advantage, they delivered as true champions did and gained the maximum 48 points for their 2 weeks and kept the door shut on Ludlow troubling them at the top of the table. 

Here is final table
