WEYMOUTH captain Harry Mitchell is seeking an improved all-round performance as the Seasiders entertain fellow promoted side Marnhull in their County Division One clash at Redlands tomorrow (1.30pm).

Mitchell’s men have lost their opening two games to Hamworthy Recreation and Shillingstone – the latter an agonising one-run defeat.

Weymouth’s batting impressed against Rec but then dipped below the required standard against Shillingstone after the Seasiders’ bowlers had dismissed Shill for 102.

Now Mitchell is targeting both aspects of Weymouth’s game to come together as the Redlands side aims for a first win of the new campaign against last season’s County Division Two champions.

He told Echosport: “So far this season we’ve been good in patches. If we can try and bring all parts of our game together I think we’ve got a really good chance of winning against a side we were promoted with.

“We know a lot about their players, how far they bat to, the strength in their bowling. We can go into this game with a good, clear picture of how we’re going to win.”

He added: “The first game the batting was pretty good, I would have liked 220, 230 but to only lose five wickets was a positive.

“The second game the bowling was exceptional. If we can bring our batting and bowling together, along with a decent fielding display, we’ll be in good stead.”

Batsmen John Wilson and Paul Collins come in for Tom England and Sahil Dalvi.

Weymouth: Collins, Webb, Wilson, M Lawes, Browne, Womble, Mitchell, Walton, Beals, Urumancheri, Puckett.
