Oswestry Cricket Club captain Dean Suter believes his side are well-placed to push higher up the table as the season progresses.

The Bordermen were without a game on the weekend after bad weather scuppered any chances of their fixture going ahead.

They sit sixth in the Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League Division Two after eight fixtures.

Suter insists the side is happy to be placed mid-table at this stage of the season.

“If you gave us a grade up to now, it would probably be a B,” he said.

“We’ve lost some games we didn’t expect to, but we’ve also won games we didn’t think we would either.

“We still have new faces gelling into the squad and some weeks we haven’t had the full squad available.

“We’re happy to be in mid-table at the moment in such a strong league.

“We feel well-placed to push on now.

“Having such a strong squad is going to give us some selection issues, but it’s the right kind of selection issues.”

Suter added that his side have not spent too much time dwelling on the last abandoned fixture, and hopes they are able to push on with a win in their next fixture this weekend.

The team captain said: “It’s one of them [the abandoned fixture] – we’ve not lost too much ground. A few teams in the division played and were able to make positive results, but it hasn’t been too damaging for us.

“We dropped a place but we’re now up to 100 points, so it’s been a good start.

“Bromsgrove are a handy side with good opening bowlers.

“They’ve got a strong starting XI players all-round.

“They’ve always been a side which can beat anyone on their day.

“We have a full strength squad this week though, so hopefully we can do the business.”

Oswestry take on Bromsgrove away on Saturday at 12 noon.
