SWINDON skipper Marc Williamson is keen to keep his side’s momentum going, although does not expect that to be straightforward against Warminster on Saturday.

Williamson’s side are unbeaten over the last five rounds of fixtures in WEPL Wiltshire – with the only game they have failed to win in that run being the wet-weather abandonment at home to Purton on June 15.

That form has seen Swindon rise up to third in the table and they are now only three points behind second-placed Devizes after beating them last weekend.

Marshfield are runaway leaders, however, as they are a further 31 points clear at the summit.

Swindon had their bowlers to thank for a 28-run win away at Warminster back in May, with a flurry of late wickets halting the home side’s run chase and securing Williamson’s side victory on the road.

The skipper, therefore, is expecting another tight encounter back at the County Ground.

“We have put together quite a few wins now so it was great to keep on a roll at Devizes last weekend and keep the momentum going,” said Williamson.

“It will be another tough game this weekend. When we played Warminster earlier in the season it was a really good game and we were lucky to edge out on top.

“It is always a tough game against Warminster – they have got a quality side from one to 11 so we will be expecting a tricky one.

“They probably should have won the league last year so they are a very good side.

“Last season, they started like a house on fire and we couldn’t really see anyone other than them winning the league but Chippenham had other ideas and it was them who ended up going up.

“We’re doing well but Marshfield are 30-odd points ahead of us so we just have to keep going.

“We will try to win every game we can and then see where we end up come the end of the season.”

Elsewhere, either Purton or Royal Wootton Bassett will claim their third win of the season on Saturday as the two sides go head-to-head.

This weekend’s hosts Purton claimed an emphatic nine-wicket victory when the two sides met in the reverse fixture back in May, but it is Bassett who hold a slightly better record this term as they sit one place and five points above their near neighbours in the table.
