BEAMINSTER captain Ross Baker will continue to adopt an experimental approach ahead of a trip to Stalbridge on Saturday (1.30pm).

Baker’s men prepare for the Dorset ‘Thank You NHS’ League Division Two clash with three enforced changes.

However, the skipper insists his team is happy to be playing again in a season impacted by COVID-19.

He told the Bridport News: “Stalbridge have had two quite impressive results and scored over 300 at Shillingstone. They’ve started very well.

“They had a bit of a struggle last year in the Prem but they’ve obviously regrouped and look strong again.

“We’re in for a tough game but we’re just happy playing.

“The forecast looks better for the weekend but we’re just looking forward to getting out there and playing.”

Beaminster have so far beaten Shillingstone and lost to Marnhull in their only fixtures to date.

Baker is now looking for a complete performance against Stalbridge, while trying new things.

He said: “We played well at Shillingstone in the first game and then for half a game at Marnhull.

“We were done a little bit by fielding first and didn’t bat well.

“Three quarters of our games we’ve performed well, but it’s going to be a tricky one to get a victory at Stalbridge.”

Beaminster are set to be without all-rounder Simon Jones, who has not fully recovered from a badly swollen foot sustained at Marnhull.

Opening bowler Nick Hollely and wicketkeeper Lewis Keenan are unavailable.

Henry and Will Everitt plus Ollie Bareham all come in.

Beaminster: Park, Baker, Crawford, A Moss, H Everitt, W Everitt, Runyard, Bareham, W Moss, Persey, AN Other.
