3:10pm Friday 13th July 2012 in Cricket
LOCAL pride is at stake when Colwall host Bromyard in a Worcestershire League Division One derby tomorrow (1.30pm).
The Stowe Lane hosts lie just 10 points above the relegation zone, while Bromyard are 25 off the top.
Optimistic Colwall captain James Abel said: “I am quietly confident about our chances this weekend.
“Our batting has been firing and, even though it will be a tough match, if we can get some early wickets and put some pressure on them, the momentum should go with us.
“It’s going to be a hard ask to avoid relegation but we have the team and individuals to do it.
“I think we can maintain our position in this league”
Bromyard captain Zahid Saeed said: “We are very confident going into this game and believe we can win the league. But it is so close at the top and it is all to play for.
“One win against a top side and you are right alongside them.”
