Jonathan Fisher is hoping his side can claim all the points as Beverley Town Cricket Club entertain Sheriff Hutton this weekend at the Norwood Recreation Ground.
Beverley will field a side that sees Mike Cooke and Anthony Spence return along with a number of youngsters. Last weekend, bad weather saw Beverley lose ground on the leaders after their game was abandoned.
Speaking to HU17.net ahead of the match against the team that are above them in the York & District Senior Cricket League Fisher said;
“We go into the game with an almost unchanged side this week, apart from Cooke returns to keep wicket and the in form Spence also returns to the team in place of the unavailable Faisal Abid”
“The lads are looking forward to what will be a tough test against a strong Sheriff Hutton team that is one place above us in the league. “
“We have had a good training session this week so after missing out last weekend because of the weather we still feel like we’re fresh and ready to go.”
“It’s a good sign that I’ve been able to pick three players from our U17s, who are in the team purely on merit, and there is still another 2 or 3 that I could pick so things are looking good.
“Any team always needs a mix of experience and youth, and I think we’ve got it just right.”
Beverley is yet to face Sheriff Hutton. The sides were due to meet in May, but rain meant the game was called off.
Traditionally, one of the stronger teams in the league Sheriff has the better record between the two clubs when it comes to matches at the Norwood Recreation Ground.
Off the field Beverley have their annual fund raiser, which follows the game but Fisher insists that will not be a distraction for his side, he said;
“We also have the sponsored walk on Sunday and Monday. It won’t distract the lads but weekends like this really prove what a fantastic club we have at Beverley.”
