Skip­per Matt Lance said: “We tailed off quite badly last sea­son due to in­juries and un­avail­abil­i­ties, which was quite up­set­ting. We have started re­ally well again, but we’re de­ter­mined not to let it slip this time.

“We’ve brought in ex­pe­ri­enced heads like Johnny Hughes and Ed Waugh, who have played in the Home Coun­ties League with Ger­rards Cross, and we still have Mark Mor­gan, who was the league’s top scorer last sea­son with 750, while leg spin­ner John Cock­croft had taken five-fers for two suc­ces­sive weeks now.”

Cock­roft’s lat­est haul (5-25), com­bined with Paul Fran­cis’s 4-34, saw Coleshill all out for just 63 in re­ply to Penn’s 231-9, in which Mor­gan top­scored with 66.
