Henley on the road

TOMORROW (Saturday, 11.30am), Henley follow their Bank Holiday trip to Gerrards Cross with another journey along the A40 to the Woods Cricket Ground to face Harefield in the Home Counties Premier League.

Harefield have got off to a poor start this season and find themselves currently ninth in Division 1, just above Reading.

Once again the form book favours Henley but it is worth bearing in mind that Harefield have not had an easy start to the season facing Banbury then High Wycombe in the first two weeks, missing out on a result in week three and losing to Great and Little Tew last weekend despite amassing 319 runs.

This is the last weekend of win/lose 50 over games before the format reverts to timed games for the next nine rounds and is therefore an opportunity for Henley to consolidate their good start by taking all 100 points from the first five rounds.

Henley are likely to name the same side that emerged from their enthralling clash against Slough last weekend.

Currently Henley are joint top with Banbury who overcame High Wycombe at London Road. Early days it may be, but there is now a degree of clear water between the top two and a chasing pack of clubs with more than 50 points comprising Wycombe, Burnham and newly promoted Great and Little Tew who are proving to be something of a surprise package.

Not far behind are Tring Park and Finchampstead who met last weekend at Tring where the visitors, boosted by the arrival of South African overseas Jandre Coetzee, came away with the points, skittling Tring out for just 79. Bringing up the rear are Slough, Harefield and finally Reading.

Elsewhere, Henley 2nds, leaders of Division 2B in the Thames Valley League, entertain Slough 2nds. Henley 3rds travel to Farnham Royal while Henley 4ths entertain Theale and Tilehurst 3rds at Nettlebed. All these games start at 1pm.
