Har­ri­son is feel­ing con­fi­dent

The Cricket Paper - - ECB PREMIER LEAGUES - By Dan Gil­lott

FARSLEY are ready to chal­lenge for the Brad­ford League crown in 2017 – ac­cord­ing to Mark Har­ri­son.

De­spite hav­ing the most games rained off in 2016, Farsley still fin­ished third in the stand­ings and have started this sea­son well.

They smashed Bat­ley by seven wick­ets in the open­ing clash of the sea­son, thanks largely to five-fors for Chris Henry and James Wain­man.

And Har­ri­son – a veteran bats­man and for­mer captain of the club – likes what he sees from the club.

“We fin­ished third last year but, hav­ing looked at ev­ery­thing, we had the most games rained off and we don’t feel as if we played that well,” he said.

“It is quite a nice feel­ing know­ing that we can play a lot bet­ter if we put both the bat­ting and bowl­ing to­gether.

“Hope­fully, then we’ll get a few more wins to be re­ally up there.

“We just hope we can get up and run­ning and get a cou­ple of wins on the board early to serve as a con­fi­dence booster for the rest of the sea­son.”
