BEAMINSTER captain Ross Baker is anticipating “a bit of an unknown” as he prepares to lead his side away at Parley Seconds in County Division Two on Saturday (1.30pm).

Baker has never played at Parley, but anticipates a tougher side than the one that lost by 105 runs at Puddletown on Saturday.

Beaminster, meanwhile, had a huge eight-wicket win at home to Cranborne and Baker hopes his side can produce another good performance.

He said: “We have got a similar team, only a couple of changes so we hope to take that momentum forward and produce another good performance.

“They are a bit of an unknown Parley because they have come down from the division above, I personally have never played at Parley so it is going to be a new experience.

“But looking at their results they can be a little bit unpredictable as well, so I am sure they will be stronger at home than they were at Puddletown where they were beaten heavily. We will just have to focus on our own game and put out another strong performance.

“If we play like we did on Saturday we will have a really good chance I think.”

In the early stages of the season, Beaminster are currently third in the table, with one win and one loss, while Parley sit three places behind with 26 points so far.

The only change, at the time of writing, for Beaminster will see Lewis Keenan slot into the middle order in place of Ollie James.
