Salisbury Journal: Shrewton cling on to unbeaten record Shrewton cling on to unbeaten record

SHREWTON played their wet weather Get Out of Jail Free card to remain top of the Hampshire League with their four-match unbeaten County Division 1 record still intact.

Facing Gosport Borough's daunting total of 319-7, Shrewton - at 81-3 in reply - faced almost certain defeat.

But then the rain came 20 overs into the Shrewton innings - and the game was abandoned.

If five more overs had been bowled, Shrewton would have lost.

New Zealander Shaun McCarthy, with a 22-boundary 114, and Michael Jenkins (89) shared a second wicket stand of 183 as Gosport powered past the 300-run mark.

When rain hit Privett Park, Shrewton were 81-3, Rich Barnett 31 not out.

Shrewton host Fareham & Crofton on Saturday (1pm).
