BERE Regis captain Rich Cole is targeting a continuation of his side’s winning momentum ahead of a trip to old foes Christchurch in Dorset Funeral Plan Premier League action tomorrow (1pm).

Cole’s men and Christchurch are familiar opponents with the two having battled against each other in County Division One for a number of years before claiming promotion.

The Hurn Bridge outfit claimed opening bragging rights after a three-wicket victory over Bere in May but, after successive wins against Stalbridge and Martinstown, Cole is looking for a third straight victory.

He told Echosport: “They got over the line, seven down, at ours and we didn’t finish the job off.

“After two wins in two weeks it’s seeing if we can try and build on that and bring in a bit of form towards the run-in.”

Bere currently occupy seventh place, while Christchurch have enjoyed a solid debut season in Dorset’s top flight, sitting one place and 15 points above Cole’s troops.

Cole has at times questioned the use of the uncontested toss rule this season, however, with unsettled weather heading into the weekend, Bere’s skipper admitted the rule could be advantageous.

“The weather’s going to be a bit indifferent so we could finally use it to our advantage,” he said.

“We’ve always had a good challenge with Christchurch through previous years before the Premier League and we’re looking forward to playing on what tends to be a very good pitch.”

Bere will replace Dave Griffiths and Crispin Brown with Elliot and Ciaran Woodhouse.

Bere Regis: M King, Payne, Murphy, Rich Cole, Rob Cole, Lambert, Walbridge, Keegan, T Goodhew, E Woodhouse, C Woodhouse
