‘Shrew’ set for pastures new

The BCC 2nd XI has been rocked with the news that teenager Ryan Shrewsberry is set to join neighbours Cullompton.

Great efforts were made to persuade the all-rounder to stay, but the lure of a promise of opening the bowling at batting at number six in the Cully 1st XI has proved too much.

We are sorry to see him go, but of course wish him all the best and he also knows that he will be welcome back at some future stage should he feel the grass is not greener on t’other side. Ryan has said he will turn out for us in some Sunday XI games, but, for now, he prefers to play his league cricket at Cullompton.

Good luck lad, and thanks for all your efforts with us through colts’ cricket and into the senior action.
