BARNARDS Green aim to get their season back on track at home to second-from-bottom Oswestry tomorrow (noon).

The Malvern side have slipped to seventh in the table after going without a Birmingham and District Premier Cricket League win since May 31 at Harborne.

Green’s disappointing run includes two defeats and two clashes abandoned due to the rain, although they did get the better of a 15-point draw at Shifnal.

They crashed at mid-table rivals Old Hill last weekend by eight wickets, claiming just two points after being dismissed for 175.

Despite 52 from opener Andrew Curtis and number three batsman Alex Hepburn’s 36, Green surrendered too many wickets cheaply.

Wicketkeeper Ash Brewer scored a late 26 but then Nitesh Patel (84 not out) took control of the reply for Old Hill with only Jon Dovey and George Rhodes able to bag wickets.

Green lost at Oswestry by 28 runs on the first day of the campaign, when they were bowled out for 132, so will be aiming to make amends tomorrow.
