Droitwich go in search of top three finish

Droitwich Editorial 7th Aug, 2015 Updated: 17th Oct, 2016

CAPTAIN Martyn Davies believes the next three weeks will define Droitwich’s season in Division One of the Worcestershire County League.

A run of three straight victories, including last week’s six-wicket win at Bromyard, has seen Spa remain in the top three.

Davies said he was delighted with his side’s form, but he insisted there was still plenty of work do as they prepare to face Burghill & Tillington tomorrow (Saturday).

After travelling to the Herefordshire side, who are unbeaten in five, Droitwich will take on in-form Bewdley and then league leaders Pershore.

And Davies said they will need to be at their very best during those ‘tough’ set of fixtures to keep their campaign on track.

“I think we are on track to where we want to finish at the moment,” he said. “The last couple of seasons we have let ourselves down. This year we have not.

“We have got seven games left, but we have got a couple of tough ones coming up. We have got Burghill away this weekend which is going to be tough as they have won five on the bounce.

“We have got Bewdley who have had a good season as well and then Pershore who are running away with the league.

“I think it (the next three weeks) will decide where we finish in the league. We have also got Nomads in a few weeks time as well who are second so it would be nice if we could catch them.

“But it is nice to be looking up the table rather than over our shoulders.”

Davies is set to return to the side along with Jay de Costa, but Spa will be without Adam Crowle who suffered a knee injury in a mid-week match.

“Burghill got off to a slow start, but they seemed to have picked up now,” he added. “I always thought they would come good.

“With both teams in good form, it should be a good game and we are all looking forward to it.”
