    Lincoln 1-0 Shrewsbury

    It might be one of Wembley's smaller crowds, but there's certainly no shortage of noise.

    Shrewsbury's 12,000 following from Shropshire might be more than doubled in size by the 26,000 army of Lincolnshire fans.

    But they have certainly made themselves known. And the Shrewsbury team have responded well since the break - and Imps boss Danny Cowley has just had to give it a bit of the old double windmill on the touchline to get his side's supporters roaring raucously again.

  3. Single remaining wall leaves historic 'house' in limbo

    Reporter, BBC Shropshire

    The future of an historic house's remains is up in the air after redevelopment work ground to a halt with most of the building already demolished.

    Only the ornate front of Haybridge Hall, Hadley, is still standing after property developer Saxonby went into administration in February.

    Wrekin Housing Trust, which has been leading the revamp plan for 10 apartments for older people, says it's trying to make sure the wall stays upright while it hunts for a new contractor.

    Its plans included keeping the original front and incorporating it into a new building. Lasers are being used to monitor its sturdiness.

    But the trust admits, almost two months on, it still hasn't got a date for when construction can restart.

  4. Music festival cancelled

    A music festival in Shropshire has been cancelled.

    Organisers of the Fieldbounce Festival, planned for 5 May in Oswestry, say it can't go ahead because of "circumstances beyond their control".

    They had previously announced that Scouting for Girls and Dappy would be among the acts.

    A further 10 Syrian refugee families are expected to be offered homes in the Shropshire Council area within the next year.

    The authority rehoused 15 Syrian families, made up of 63 people, between June 2016 and March 2017.

    The families were given homes in Oswestry, Shrewsbury, Wem and Much Wenlock.

    A report, going before the council's cabinet next week, says while some of the refugees are doing volunteer work, they're struggling to get paid jobs as their English needs improving.

    It goes on to say that the resettlement hasn't cost the authority any money and the latest plans are expected to be backed on Wednesday.

    Quote Message: [Alice has] had a great start to the year. Obviously, she did the World Cup in Birmingham just a couple of weeks ago and picked up that bronze medal which surely will give her a lot of confidence going into the Commonwealth Games." from Beth Tweddle Former gymnastic star
