West Norfolk Cricket League: Excitement as Hospital prepare to make historic Division One debut
Hospital all-rounder Kevin Fisher admits everyone at the club can't wait to begin their first season in West Norfolk Cricket League Division One at Sandringham tomorrow.
Hospital all-rounder Kevin Fisher admits the club's players can't wait to begin their first season in West Norfolk Cricket League Division One at Sandringham tomorrow.
The King's Lynn side were forced to wait another week to make an historic debut at their highest-ever level after rain wiped out every fixture across the league's first round of matches last weekend.
However, after a slightly drier week, the 43-year-old is hopeful his team will be able to make their bow in the league's top division for the first time in their 30-year history this weekend.
Fisher said: 'We're all really excited about the season and it should be a nice test for us.
'We've had some dark years where the crux of the team got jobs elsewhere so we've had to constantly rebuild. We might have lost our best batsman (Mithun Sortur) but our players are really excited about making the step up.'
The River Lane outfit lifted the Division Two trophy last season but Fisher, who is also the league's secretary, believes tomorrow's opposition will be the side to beat this year.
