BEAMINSTER skipper Will Moss has called for greater impact from his bowling unit in the crunch bottom-of-the-table County Division One clash with Compton House on Saturday.

Beaminster were last Saturday beaten by five wickets at Weymouth, who won with 58 balls to spare chasing 195.

And Moss, who returns to the side along with former skipper Chris Park, backed his side’s ability in what is their biggest home game of the season so far.

He told the Bridport News: “It’s a crucial match for us, we’ve got to go out there and put a strong performance in like the Witchampton game a few weeks ago. We need everyone to step up.

“We’re playing some of (House’s) team in the Evening League, so it will be good to get an understanding of their team and tactics.

“We’ve got to keep taking regular wickets. We’ve not been able to apply the pressure for long enough.

“We’ve been letting teams hit scores of 250-plus, it makes your life harder trying to chase down a monumental total.”

Ben Padwick, Ben Golledge, Ian Hutchings, Rob Meech and Ben Fry miss out.

Beaminster are also hoping to agree an early 11am start to avoid a clash with England v Switzerland at Euro 2024 (5pm).
