CATTISTOCK'S Jon Legg claimed six wickets on debut on the second day of Dorset's Unicorns Championship clash against Shropshire at Chapel Gate.

However, despite his exploits, Dorset were facing a mammoth task to sink their Western Division rivals, needing 296 to win with nine second innings wickets remaining.

Legg's heroics helped dismiss Shropshire for 211 after Dorset had made 192 in reply to the visitors' first innings total of 310.

Resuming at 65 for two, Dorset lost North Perrott's Alex Eckland for the addition of just four runs to their overnight total.

But a fourth-wicket stand of 51 between St Cross's Ed Ellis and Webb saw them progress to 120 for three.

However, they then lost four wickets for just 39 runs with Josh McCoy, Chris Park and Jigar Naik all going cheaply after Ellis (34) had been caught and bowled by Gurjit Sandhu.

Webb (74) shared 30 for the eighth wicket with Mark Wolstenholme before his 190-ball stay came to an end when he was pouched by Warrick Fynn off the bowling of Alexei Kervezee.

Legg lasted just four balls before he became Fynn's fourth victim and was quickly followed by Wolstenholme as Dorset lost their final three wickets for the addition of just three runs.

With a lead of 118 on first innings, Shropshire added a further 211 with spinner Legg (6-58) the star of the show.

Dorset's lost opener Josh Digby and were 34 for one at stumps with Ben Wells and Webb the not out batsmen.
