Halstead must focus on the job in hand

First published in Sport by

Halstead Cricket Club’s players know they can’t let their minds wander to their big forthcoming game against Frinton seconds as they have a job to do against Exning first.

The game against Frinton on August 2 will see the current top two in Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship division two go head to head, but vice-captain Josh Wells has said everyone at Star Stile needs to focus on today before they get to that fixture.

A six-wicket defeat at Elmstead Grasshoppers last weekend, when a lost toss proved costly for Halstead, has made a success against Exning even more important.

Wells said: “The table is looking very tight and no-one can afford to have a string of bad results.

“Look at Braintree – they were pushing for the top a couple of weeks ago and have lost the last few and are now back in mid-table.

“We know it’s a massive game coming up against Frinton, but we have to focus on this game first.”
