Portland Red Triangle begin their preparations for the new season with a friendly against Bradford Abbas at the WindowMan Oval, Reforne tomorrow (2pm).

Club secretary Grant Neven is looking forward to the new term with the club aiming to build on last year’s consistency and the Sunday first team’s title winning performances.

He said: “Last year the club made huge strides on the field. Players performed to their strengths and all the teams produced cricket that the club can be proud of.

“The target now is to build on this and for all teams to push for promotion. We have the ability, the drive and the players and have trained hard over the winter to improve in all aspects of the game.

“With Lady Luck on our side who knows what further honours could be heading to Portland.

“New signings Simon Ben-dall and Ian Springer will be making their debuts tomorrow with both showing good form with both bat and ball at nets.

“Lawrence West returns after a year’s absence to strengthen the batting and veteran Jon Dixon will be hoping to continue from where he left off last season with the ball.”

Triangle: Neven, Price, D Males, S Males, Springer, Cameron, Whisker, West, Bendall, Dixon, Theakstone. Twelfth man: M Colbroke.
