BOSTON Cricket Club are looking to reclaim second spot as they host rivals Bourne in the Lincs ECB Premier on Saturday.

The Mayflower men recently relinquished second in the league after being leapfrogged by their rivals.

But with just four points separating the opponents, Boston know success at the Mayflower could see them gain a place and possibly put some extra pressure on leaders Bracebridge Heath.

“If we do well against Bourne then it puts us in a very strong position,” captain Paul Timby told The Standard.

“We go out looking to win every match and that will be the case again.

“Confidence is very high in the team.”

Boston will be without Josh Newton for the second week running, but hope to have everyone else available for selection.

“It’s a shame to lose Josh at this stage,” Timby added.

He’s been working very hard on his game this summer and it has paid off for him, as you can see by his performances.”

After facing Bourne, Boston’s final two matches of the season are at strugglers Woodhall and at home to fourth-placed Sleaford.
