It’s nice to be at the top end of the table this time but from what I’ve seen so far any team can beat anyone this year

Joe White produced impressive figures as the division two leaders beat Gerrards Cross by five wickets on Saturday.

Harris said: “Dinton is always a difficult place to go and get a result. But the players are very confident.

“It’s nice to be at the top end of the table this time but from what I’ve seen so far any team can beat anyone in this division this year.

“We did well in the field last year in the Davidstow Village Cup and we’ve taken that into the league games this year but the biggest difference is that we’re scoring more freely.

“Having Martin Coetzee batting in the middle order is taking the pressure off the boys at the top of the order.

“We bowled very tightly against Gerrards Cross and didn’t give them anything but I was surprised they batted first.

“Our batsmen had plenty of time in the middle against Horley in the Bernard Tollett Cup in midweek and that showed with Ashley Hubbert’s innings on Saturday.”
