BEAMINSTER will choose from a full-strength squad as Cranborne visit the Memorial Ground in County Division Two action on Saturday (1.30pm)

The West Dorset side were shorn of captain Ross Baker, all-rounders Simon Jones and Richard Runyard plus Leo Gurd.

After missing the 93-run defeat to Witchampton, that quartet will bolster a Beaminster side looking to record their first win of the season against the Cranes, who crushed Poole Town Seconds by 194 runs.

Baker told the Bridport News: “We’re looking to get some points on the board and we’ve got a full-strength team.

“It’ll be interesting to see how we go against one of the strongest sides.

“Cranborne are very strong at home – it’s interesting to see how strong they are away because they don’t always travel well.

“They obviously played well last week and hit a big total. They’re going to be very aggressive with the bat and they’ve got some useful bowlers as well.

“It’ll be a tough game for us but we’ll be up for it.”

Despite several senior players being unavailable, Beaminster put up a strong fight at Witchampton in a 93-run loss in County Division Two.

After an uncontested toss, Beaminster started well with Daniel Swift (0-16) bowling an excellent line and length.

Will Moss (1-43) trapped Martin Ashford lbw for three for an early wicket.

Ade Phillips (1-30) and Nick Hollely (1-38) each took a wicket, including an excellent catch from Simon Bareham, but a magnificent unbeaten 121 from Adam Croker set up the win.

Only Swift (45no) and skipper Chris Park (29) resisted as Witchampton closed out victory.
