Yax­ley v Bar­nack, Middletons Road (6.15pm)

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

THIS is a tricky tie to call, but the home team have most of the mo­men­tum hav­ing won two Cambs Divi­siontwo matches in suc­ces­sion.

Yax­ley have re­cruited well in the close sea­son to make up for the ab­sence of club stal­wart Dave Strat­ton. Sign­ing for­mer Deep­ing skip­per Nick Cow­ley was a ter­rific coup for the club.

But Bar­nack have plenty of pride in the team and will put up a fight. Key clash: Nick Cow­ley v Steve Best Cow­ley is a dan­ger­ous hit­ter (a slog­ger rather than a stylist) and a canny slow left-arm bowler who can take a game away from any lo­cal team in an in­stant.

All-rounder Best, the Bar­nack cap­tain, has been a pop­u­lar and tal­ented fig­ure on the lo­cal scene for decades and still re­tains enough pride in his and his team’s per­for­mance to en­sure 100 per cent com­mit­ment from his play­ers tonight.

Ver­dict: Yax­ley to shade it.

NAT­U­RAL ABIL­ITY: James Wil­liams.

BIG HIT­TER: Andy Larkin.
