John Morgan believes Hastings Priory’s cricketers stand as good a chance as anybody in a tightly-bunched division.
The top four teams in Sussex Cricket League Division Two have all won five and lost two of their first seven games, and Priory remain one point off the summit in second place.
Priory captain Morgan said: “Man for man I back our team against everybody in the division, but that’s one thing - the other is going out and performing. It’s a tight league, but our application has been pleasing and we’ve got strength in depth.”
Priory have won their last three fixtures in convincing fashion and will be hoping to continue their fine form at home to fourth-placed Findon tomorrow (Saturday).
“Saturday’s going to be a test again,” added Morgan. “Findon are an unknown quantity, they’ll be an organised side and they’ve won just as many as us.
“We’ve had that run of three wins now and winning is a habit. We’re growing in confidence and hopefully we can keep the run going.”
Priory batsmen Joe Lamb and Adam Maharaj-Newman are set to return for a match which is due to get under way from 1pm. There has yet to be a draw in the division all season.
