Crunch time for Hook and Newnham Basics' hopes of finishing third
HOOK and Newnham Basics’ hopes of a third-place finish in Southern League Division One will be ended this weekend if they lose to visiting Liphook and Ripsley, the current incumbents of this position.
The home side will also be looking to wipe out the memory of their worst batting display of the season when they were shot out for 59 as they tried to chase down Liphook’s 180.
Hook welcome back Nick Willcock to their line-up so only skipper Ross Hunter is missing, vice-captain Glen Williams remaining in charge.
Williams said: “We are still looking to finish third and we did not do well against them last time. We want to end our home campaign with a win and erase that poor performance.”
Last Saturday, their game ended after 13.5 overs at Burridge, with the title chasers on 43-1 as Williams snapped up the only wicket thanks to Joe Allnutt’s catch.
