Michael Francis at Unique Copiers

A budding cricketer has been bowled over after landing a new job while on the field. Michael Francis, 29, of Lawley, has been taken on by St George’s-based Unique Copiers after meeting owner Adrian Casey at Wellington Cricket Club.

Francis is being trained as an engineer at the family run firm, which supplies photocopiers and copying services to schools and businesses across Shropshire and beyond.
