Shropshire v Bedfordshire

This coming weekend Shropshire will be playing hosts to Bedfordshire in what will be the mid-season fixture in division four of the BDO Inter County Championships. Without a win in their opening four games the hosts will be hoping to get off the mark in this their latest fixture, a vital game if they are to move away from their next to bottom of the table position as they will be lining up against the team directly above who are twelve points to the good on 69 compared to Shropshire’s 57. Not only would a win reduce the arrears on their visitors but would boost the confidence throughout the team ready for their next fixture which is against high riding Buckinghamshire who are currently second in the promotion table on the same 104 points as leaders Somerset.
