Oswestry skipper Dean Suter insists his side are not daunted by the prospect of going to the ‘best team in the league’ when they visit Wolverhampton on Saturday.

The Morda Road men have been left to kick their heels for two consecutive weekends because of the foul weather which has blighted much of June in Shropshire.

Wolverhampton sit second in the Birmingham League Premier Division Two, just four points behind leaders Leamington, but a maximum points win – 25 if opting to bat first – on Saturday could propel Oswestry over their strong rivals.

And Suter added that the spirit in the camp is good at the Stonehouse Oval, with many managing to maintain their level in the nets waiting for the clouds to clear.

“We’re itching to get out there and play on Saturday,” said Suter.

“No-one likes the rain but you can see it’s been happening all over the country and the World Cup is the same – it has been affected.

“But it’s more frustrating because we’ve had that win and then not played for two weeks, but the mood is good and we’ve still been netting really well.”

Suter was keen to show that his side can produce a result against anyone in the league, and believes that his current set of stars have what it takes to win.

He added: “Wolverhampton are probably the strongest team in the league with a mix of current and ex-first class players.

“But I think it is sometimes forgotten that we, Oswestry, are also a big team in this league and we have a great set of quality players.

“We have the Shropshire captain in Joe Carassco and plenty of big players, as well as Roman Walker, who has played first class cricket for Glamorgan.

“We’ve got quality throughout and we can always go out an give anyone a game.

“It’s very much a case that if our 11 players do better than all of their 11 players, then we will win the game.

“It’s the same throughout the league – every team is capable of beating others, and even the bottom side has players with thousands of runs to their name.

“There’s no weak link in the league, and that’s why we have confidence in going out and beating a team like Wolverhampton.”

The clash at Danescourt starts at 12noon.

Meanwhile, more international cricket has been confirmed for the Stonehouse Oval as Pakistan over-60s face England on Friday, and Australia on Monday, June 24, both starting at 11.30am.
