With Tom Baxter expected to remain sidelined due to injury, Ryan Croom will be all set to continue in the role of captain as Boston Cricket Club Firsts prepare to face second-placed Bracebridge Heath on Saturday.

With no further absences, Boston could look at using an unchanged side as they head to Lincoln for this Lincs ECB Premier clash.

Bracebridge are also the reigning champions, after beating current pacesetters Sleaford to the title by nine points last year.

“Bracebridge are a very good side and have won this league plenty of times,” Baxter said.

“They have seven or eight players that, on their day, can win games on their own.”

Boston sit eighth in the table and will be looking to pick up valuable points in their battle to stay away from the bottom of the table.
