WESTBURY captain Alex Senneck is relishing Saturday’s top-of-the-table clash with Goatacre following his side’s ‘straightforward’ seven-wicket success at Chippenham.

Senneck’s men welcome the table-toppers to Studland Park knowing that a win for his team will put them at the summit of Premier Two Glos/Wilts with less than half the season to go.

However, despite size of the battle that awaits Westbury, skipper Senneck is looking to play down the importance of the match.

“Of course, it would be nice if we win, it will keep our run going and put us top of the table as there are six points between us,” Senneck said. “But if we don’t then it is not the end of the world.

“There is still a lot of cricket to be played and there are lot of points on offer.

“This is a big match and if we can win that will be great. What we want make sure of is that the game goes ahead.

“We were due to play each earlier in the season – it was first-versus-second then as well – but it was rained off.”

Against Chippenham on Saturday, Westbury, who invited the hosts to bat first, took early wickets with Richard Oakley (4-43) trapping Denson Narayan leg before for just four.

The Hardenhuish Park side never really recovered as they were bowled out for 145 with their captain Oli Jones unbeaten on 67, while Richard Mills claimed 4-13 from 6.1 overs.

After an early wobble in the reply, which saw Westbury fall to 44-3, Mike Coles (83 not out) and Mills (32 not out) led the team home in 31st over.

“It was a pretty straightforward win to be honest,” Senneck said. “It was a good toss to win as the wicket was a bit soft and green and I wasn’t sure how it was going to play.

“We bowled really well and steadily went through their batting order.

“Then, despite an early wobble, we got home quite comfortably.”
