CRICKET: Bridport searching for back-to-back victories

Dorset Echo: SKIPPER: Duane Gay SKIPPER: Duane Gay

BRIDPORT go in search of back-to-back league wins for the first time this season when they host high-flying Kingston Lacy in County Division Three tomorrow (1.30pm).

The home side beat Christ-church Seconds last time out when Duane Gay made his bow as Bridport captain, and he is confident his men can repeat the feat against second-placed Lacy.

A fractured finger means Ollie Lee misses out for Bridport and he is replaced by his brother Alex.

Paul Stonely also comes into the team to give Bridport a full complement of players after they went to Christchurch one short.

“We are confident after last weekend and we can beat anyone in this league when we’ve got our strongest side out,” said Gay.

“Weather permitting, I think we’ll do alright, and there is a great team spirit in the squad.

“We’ve got so many young players involved now and things are looking good.”

Gay was pleased with the bowling of Calvin Lewis against Christchurch and he will get another chance to impress.

The two sides were due to meet on the second weekend of the season but that match fell to the weather, since then Lacy have underlined their title credentials.

They have won five of their eight games so far and are just two points behind leaders Stur-minster Marshall.

There is a tasty-looking contest in store in Division Two where Cerne Valley, in second, face Portland Red Triangle, currently in third place – Beaminster are without a game.

Frontrunners Cattistock can record win number seven of the campaign if they overcome Stalbridge Seconds away from home.

Abbotsbury will fancy their chances of seeing off struggling Bradford Abbas in Division Four, while Portland Red Triangle Seconds welcome Cerne Valley Seconds to Reforne.

At the bottom of Division Six, Beaminster Seconds go to fellow strugglers Cranborne Seconds.
