Boston Cricket Club captain Tom Baxter has conceded defeat in the race for promotion to the Lincs ECB Premier.
The Mayflower men now trail leaders Billingborough by 31 points following their four-wicket defeat on Saturday.
“Statistically we still have a chance but it won’t happen,” he said. “We had a target this year to finish in the top three and that will hopefully happen now.”
Boston travel to Lindum on Saturday in a game that they will be hoping to return to some form.
Baxter added: “We will be aiming for four wins to end the season which will see us finish second.”
Boston expect to be able to select the same 11 players this week but changes will occur in the last few games of the season.
