MARTINSTOWN captain Sam Kershaw is keen to see his side’s attacking instincts shine through ahead of their Dorset Funeral Plan Premier League battle with Christchurch tomorrow (1pm).

Kershaw’s men take to the field at Lower Ashton Farm having claimed just one win at home all season following a campaign in which they successfully staved off relegation last weekend.

A youthful line-up is expected of the Villagers, who beat Christchurch by 88 runs in the reverse fixture.

Kershaw told Echosport: “We’ve been restricted this year through poor results, which has led to a focus on points.

“It’s more about enjoying cricket again and time on the pitch. At this stage it’s a bit of a freer brand, maybe trying a few different things.

“Ed Maltby’s in the team, we’ll maybe give him a few more overs.

“Next week could be an interesting fixture for us, with Dorchester competing to win the league. We’ll try and get a bit of form going into that game.”

Kershaw will be unavailable for the contest, meaning Ryan Chase skippers Martinstown.

Ed Nichols (broken finger) remains out, while Lee House, Charlie Durant, Jack Kane and Liam Moss make way for George and Tom Pope, Charlie Stewart, Chris Read and Fraser Hill.

Martinstown: G Pope, S Williams, W Maltby, T Pope, J Stewart, Hill, Chase, C Stewart, Camp, E Maltby, Read
