Bognor Regis CC will be looking to snap a two match losing streak when they head to St James’s Montefiore tomorrow (12.30pm).
After a promising start to the Division Two campaign, Ryan Maskell’s side have stuttered in recent weeks, which has seen them slip to fifth in the ten-team division.
The poor run continued last time out when despite a brave captain’s display from Maskell, Bognor slumped to a 104-run loss to league leaders Billingshurst at the Regis Oval.
After winning the toss and electing to field, the home side’s bowlers struggled to make headway against a strong Hurst battling line-up. West Indian Marquino Mindley (2-53) was the pick of the Bognor bowlers but they were unable to stop Billingshurst from reaching 208 for seven with Tim Weston (76*) the standout performer.
In reply, Bognor struggled to get going. Two early wickets left them at 11-2. And despite skipper Maskell leading from the front with a quickfire 42 from 53 balls, the rest of the Bognor line-up struggled to give him support.
Only number 10 Jamie Woolnough (18) reached double figures as they were bowled out for 104.
