Rangers primed for Counties repeat
Southampton Rangers will aim to continue their impressive Western Counties form when they meet PHC in the third round at White Hill Field today.
The champions have had things all their own way in the previous rounds and are heavily favoured to retain their title against PHC.
Rangers beat Willow Cuts by six wickets in the first round and Somerset Bridge, this year’s tournament hosts, by 105-runs in the second.
Rangers and PHC had not announced their teams at press time yesterday.
However, it is highly likely that the champions’ line-up will again boast guest players Dion Stovell and Derrick Brangman, the son of Rangers coach and former captain Ricky Brangman.
Today’s 50-over contest begins at 11am with the winner to meet Warwick in the final round on August 26.
Also taking place today is the final round-robin phase of the Junior Eastern Counties, with leaders St David’s taking on Bailey’s Bay at Sea Breeze Oval and Cleveland County facing Flatts at Lords.
The top two teams after the round-robin stage will meet in the final.
St David’s are already through to the final and it now remains to be seen who joins them with second placed Bay level on points with Cleveland but ahead on net run rate.
Meanwhile, Premier League action resumes tomorrow with leaders and defending champions St David’s hosting Western Stars at Lord’s, Cleveland taking on Southampton Rangers at Wellington Oval while Somerset are at home against Bailey’s Bay.
In First Division play, St George’s and PHC will be looking to close the gap on idle leaders Flatts who have a bye this weekend. PHC are away to Devonshire while St George’s will travel to the other end of the island to face Somerset Bridge at White Hill Field. Warwick will do battle with Western Counties rivals Willow Cuts at Southampton Oval in the remaining First Division match.
