EYES SAFETY: Will Everitt

BEAMINSTER could all but secure their Dorset League Division Two status with victory at Witchampton tomorrow (1.30pm).

A crucial win over fellow strugglers Dorchester Seconds last Saturday – their third in a row – lifted the West Dorset outfit 18 points clear of danger.

And a fourth straight victory tomorrow will surely see Will Ever-itt’s men safe for another summer, especially with the county town side facing third-bottom Poole Town Sec-onds on the final day of the season.

Beaminster could even climb into mid-table this weekend as their fifth-placed opponents are just 10 points better off.

Bridport, on the other hand, look destined for life in Division Four.

The Brewery Field outfit were forced to cancel last Saturday’s clash with relegation rivals Parley Sec-onds and are now 32 points adrift of safety.

Liam Toohill’s side must win at Cerne Valley tomorrow (1.30pm) to stand any chance of retaining their league status.

Valley’s last outing was a 100-run victory at Portland Red Triangle.

The latter are also in action tomorrow as they travel to title-chasing Compton House (1.30pm).

The third-tier leaders are 17 points clear of their nearest rivals and will hope to secure the title on home turf.

However, they will be wary of a Triangle side who earned a two-wicket success when the two teams last met in June.

Elsewhere, in Division Six North & West, Beaminster Seconds play host to rock-bottom Gillingham (1.30pm).
