Oswestry's early season struggles continue as they crashed to their third successive Birmingham Premier League Two defeat, going down heavily to Wolverhampton by 132 runs at Danescourt on Saturday.

The visitors' batting frailties were again exposed as Shropshire all rounder Charlie Home wreaked havoc with his off-spin, taking 7-33 as the Bordermen were bundled out for 132 in 38 overs.

Only skipper, Warrick Fynn (34) and county batsman Ryan Lockley (58) showed any resistance as five Oswestry batsmen failed to score.

Lockley's half-century,which came off 74 balls, included six fours.

It was a day to remember for Home as he and skipper Willie Nield added 193 for Wolverhampton's fourth wicket.

Home fell just 10 short of his century whilst Nield went on to make a fine 114 for the Staffordshire side which reached 268-8 off their allotted 55 overs.

One bright spot for the Bordermen was the return of young pace bowler Alex Selby who marked his season debut with 3-68, dismissing both Home and Nield.

Ben Roberts (3-58) and and David Laird (2-38) also claimed wickets but it was not enough as their side slumped to defeat which sees them second from bottom in the able ahead of next weekend's visit of high-flying Wem.
