HARTLEY Wintney will make five changes for the visit of OTs and Romsey in Southern League Division Two.

Captain Jamie Teale, Matt Digweed, Danny Plume and Flanders brothers Danny and Tommy are all unavailable.

Their replacements will be Rex Porter, Louis Lynch, Will Ross and the Kerr brothers, Matt and Jonny.

South African Ari Karvelas will captain the side again. When he was last in charge, a fortnight ago, he steered Hartley to a 86-run victory away at Langley Manor.

The replacements all have experience of first team cricket.

Ross was impres-sive at Langley Manor as he led the bowling with three wickets.

OTs and Romsey, the visitors at the weekend to Hartley, finished mid-table last season.

However, they were one of only two teams to beat eventual champions Basing-stoke.

Looking forward to the game on Saturday, Teale said: “They have lost two games so far and I think the players we have brought in will do a job. Hopefully we can get another win.

“After this week we will be at full strength for the rest of the season.”

Last weekend, Hartley’s trip to Paultons was called off early on Saturday morning due to a waterlogged pitch.
