Great & Little Tew skipper Andy Harris will not be unduly concerned at his side’s defeat against Amersham but will be looking to bounce back against Buckingham Town in Saturday’s Home Counties Premier Cricket League fixture.

The long-time division two leaders saw their advantage reduced to 25 points following a four run defeat against Amersham at Ledwell Road where they entertain Buckingham on Saturday.

Gerrards Cross are Tew’s nearest challengers and the two clubs meet later this month when Harris will be hoping his side have recouped their advantage.

Harris said: “It was a great game for the neutrals and going into the last over we could have won, drawn or lost.

“It’s always disappointing to lose in a tight game but we’ve come out on top in other tight games this year.

“We’re still in a good position but we’ve got to make sure we don’t allow the gap to close further.

“I’d have settled for being in this position at the start of the season but we need to take the lion’s share of the points against Buckingham this weekend to stay clear.”
