Berkshire aiming to bounce back
Published 09/06/14



BERKSHIRE open their Unicorns Championship campaign with a game against Cornwall at Henley on Sunday.

They will be looking to get off to a winning start following their exit from the Unicorns Trophy, which saw the holders lose three of their four group games.

Team manager Jeff Jones said: “We are all disappointed about going out of that competition, but the three-day championship is completely different.

“We are confident we can get back to winning ways against Cornwall.”

The two counties met in the final game of last season at St Austell, with the Cornwall last-pair holding out for 50 minutes to force a draw.


“We dominated the game from start to finish,” said Berkshire skipper James Morris, who made 144 in the first innings.

“With nine wickets down all our players were convinced that their No.11 had been caught at silly point, but the umpire thought differently and his decision is final.”

Former Henley player Morris added: “Had that decision gone our way, we would have finished fourth rather than fifth in the Western Division.”

Berkshire have beaten Cornwall more times than they have any other county, with 41 victories in 89 meetings. They have lost only 13.

Berkshire will be without Henley players Michael Roberts - due to work commitments - and Tom Nugent, who has university exams.

The match is due to start at 11am and admission is free.
