LECHLADE head into the second half of the Premier One season full of confidence after claiming only their third win of the campaign last Saturday.

The Manor Ground men enjoyed a six wicket success at Bristol and they will be looking to build on that victory tomorrow when they head to fellow new boys Bedminster.

Freddie Martin’s side got their season off to a fantastic start back in May when putting the Premier Two Bristol/Somerset champions to the sword by seven wickets.

Now strike bowler Liam Smith, who took 3-40 in that win over Bristol, is hoping Lechlade can make it back-to-back wins for the first time this term.

“It is the second half the season now, we are definitely looking for a victory after comfortably beating them in the first round at home, we should be pretty confident,” Smith said.

“We are switched on and everyone is doing their own roles, it is falling into place for us.

“We know we can compete in this league, we have just got to keep our heads and do our jobs on the field.

“We don’t want to over-confident, we just want to play our cricket the way we have been doing and hope it falls into place.”

Royal Wootton Bassett will be looking to bounce back from a humbling defeat to Marshfield tomorrow when they host second-placed Warminster in WEPL Wiltshire.

Darren Beasant’s men were skittled for just 55 last Saturday as they looked to chase down a modest 202.

However, while Bassett will be like a wounded animal, their visitors, Warminster, will be keen to get their promotion charge back on track after losing to leaders Trowbridge last Saturday.

When Bassett headed to Sambourne Road in May for their first game back in the West of England Premier League in three years they returned home with a five wicket success.

Swindon will be looking to put last Saturday’s last-ball dramatic defeat behind them when they host Marshfield at the County Ground.

Alex Kill’s side lost by two wickets against Marlborough at home last time with the winning the run coming off the final delivery.

Purton face a tough test in their bid for consistency when they head to table-topping Trowbridge.

Aaron Lee’s side enjoyed an 18-run victory over Great Bedwyn last weekend and they will be keen to complete the double over Trowbridge after beating on the opening day of the campaign.
