Hook and Newnham Basics remain focused on third place
HOOK and Newnham Basics’ Matt Love will take charge of the first team for the first time in the Southern League with both captain Ross Hunter and vice captain Glen Williams unavailable.
Love will be hoping to guide the side into third place with a victory at bottom side Andover.
It would complete another double for the side, who won by 93 runs last time, with opener Ben Thane a century maker in their winning score of 230-9.
Last weekend, Hook’s game against Liphook was washed out and Williams, who skippered the side, said: “It just kept on raining so we never played, but went up to fourth in the table as New Milton lost.”
Hook also have spin bowler Kevin Poulter missing, but Josh Buckingham and Alex Cates return, while another bowler will move up from the second XI.
Looking ahead to the final game Williams said: “We still want third place and I think if we can stop Andover’s overseas player we have a great chance.”
Liphook are currently third and Hook would need them to lose at home to New Milton if they are to snatch a late podium place.
