CRICKET: Horncastle look for winning boost

Horcastle Cricket Club will be looking to bounce back from an opening day defeat when they visit rivals Owmby tomorrow (Saturday) in Division One of the Lincolnshire County League.

The spotlight will be on skipper Nick Paige and the rest of the front-line batsmen as Horncastle mustered just 80 against Haxey Seconds last Saturday at Coronation Walk.

Haxey duly knocked off the required runs for the loss of three wickets - despite some spirited bowling and fielding from a young Horncastle line-up.

Paige will again be an important figure tomorrow against an Owmby side that started the season with a seven wicket success at Scunthorpe Town seconds.
