Shrewsbury 1 SUFC 0 

Fish Walsh braved the chilly and wet Shropshire air to report. Shrews were riding high at the top of the table and Blues went in with no Whitey or Kightly, and Ranger’s ball and chain wasn’t long enough to reach the game. Starts for Yearwood, Harry Kyp and Elvis.

First half and Shrews show why they’re top with pressure, Ox saving and Payne hitting the post. But Nolan scores for 1-0, Blues under the cosh but Demi, McLaugh-in and Dru try their luck. Halfo 1-0, Fish gets a cup of cow’s tail gratings.

Second half and Blues give it a go, Timmo, Kyp, Lenny and Coxy all go close, Timmo denied a pen by bottle job referee. But it the same old same old as no cutting edge means the 170 Shrimpers go home without a goal to cheer.
