AN OSWESTRY cricketer was the star performer in Shropshire County's latest fixture.

All-rounder Warrick Fynn top scored for his county against Dorset, hitting half centuries in both innings, before taking seven wickets on the final day.

He was the standout performer, helping himself to 7-60 from 29.3 overs in Dorset's first innings, and ending with impressive match figures of 11-118 from 57.3 overs.

Fynn helped his side to their 162 run victory over Dorset, in what was his first appearance for the county appearance since the opening Unicorns Championship match of the season against Cheshire in June.

Shropshire County Cricket Club now have three wins out of four in the Unicorns Championship this season, leaving them second in the table and 19 points adrift of leaders Berkshire.

Bryan Jones, Shropshire’s chairman of selectors, was delighted with the result and highlighted the contribution of Fynn.

Jones said: “Warrick bowled tremendously well, we bowled well in partnerships, but obviously Warrick was outstanding with seven wickets.

"Arguably it’s probably one of the best performances we’ve had.

“We were delighted he came into the team and did that straight away and made a big impact. I think he’s available for the next two games as well.

“We’ve won three out of four, which we’re delighted with, and we’re looking to win both of the next games to keep the pressure on Berkshire."

After three away matches in a row in the Unicorns Championship, Shropshire’s two final Western Division matches are both at home, starting with Wales Minor Counties in Oswestry on August 19.
