Hampshire start T20 Blast campaign against Glamorgan

Have your say

It’s now or never for Purbrook to plot their Hampshire League division one survival.

That’s the view of Purbrook skipper Sean Figgins ahead of their home match with fellow strugglers Easton & Martyr Worthy tomorrow.

Purbrook prop up the league table but Figgins insists a second win of the campaign can provide a platform for a great escape.

‘This is a must-win game for us if we want to stay up,’ said Figgins.

‘Ellingham last week said they couldn’t believe we were bottom and had played a lot worse team than us.

‘But it is a results business and we need to scrap to put a few together.’

Batsman Josh Spiers comes in for the injured Craig Marsh, and 14-year-old spinner Matt McGlinchey keeps his place after doing well last week.

Powerful Locks Heath can boost their title ambitions by seeing off lowly hosts Shrewton.

Jack Levy’s team hauled themselves into fourth place with an excellent seven-wicket win over Portchester, increasing the pressure on the leading group.

Portchester have no time to feel sorry for themselves after the defeat because unbeaten Ellingham are the visitors to Cams School.

Fast-improving Gosport Borough will fancy their chances of winning the mid-table battle against St Cross Symondians III at Privett Park.

Fareham & Crofton have captain Luke Gould back after a two-match ban for the trip to Midhurst.

In division two, Rowner make the long journey to Hungerford looking for a win to relieve their relegation worries.

A poor run has seen Jason Hoskin’s team slip to third from bottom.
