The Saints will be looking to put their indifferent league form behind them as they chase their first piece of NatWest Weekend League silverware since lifting the Senior Cup back in 1998.St Ouen captain Richard Gomersall said: ‘It’s going to be a very tough game for us as we have four regulars missing, two leading batsmen and a spinner.
We are big underdogs but we’ll give it our best shot and hopefully we can end our season on a high.’Paul Horton and Craig Douglas have been bowling excellently of late and I’m hoping they can continue their form.
We’ll also have to bat and field very well and we are capable of doing that.’Rob Tewkesbury, Gary Kynman, Danny Blasco and David Parry are all missing for St Ouen.Sporting Club captain Tony Carlyon said: ‘St Ouen are capable of causing an upset, they will not be underestimated by us.
Yes we will be favourites because of our track record while we’ve hit a bit of form lately too.’Our last two games against Caesareans and Old Victorians we played well all round.
The players seemed to have lifted themselves a bit as they were both big games and we deserved to win.
Everything seems to be clicking into place, a big key has been in the batting where we have started to put some good partnerships together and that seems to have motivated the team.’Play in the 40-overs-a-side match, where bowlers are limited to a maximum of eight overs each, start at 1.30 pm.St Ouen: Richard Gomersall, Martin Amy, Mark Tribe, Craig Douglas, Grant Phillips, Paul Horton, Dave Clark, Karl Moyse, Dendy Thompson, Mick Poulter and Simon Varley.Sporting Club (from): Matt Hague, Steve Carlyon, Tony Carlyon, Ben Silva, Simon Short, Trevor Rousseau, Mark Reynolds, Nick Jewell, Dave Morfee, Paul Carberry, Bradley Vautier, Graeme Marett and Matthew Christenson.
