CAPTAIN Chris Ringham says March Cricket Club is desperate to end their horror run and return to winning ways before the end of the season.

His side lost by seven wickets to Nassington on Saturday - their sixth defeat in seven games - and now sit a disappointing seventh in the Tucker Gardner League.

But Ringham insists his side have plenty to play for in their final two games, which both take place at home, against Foxton on Saturday and rivals Wisbech next weekend.

Wisbech, who March upset ealier this season, could arrive at The Avenue needing a win to seal the title.

Ringham said: “It would be nice to finish with two wins but these are two really tough games.

“Foxton have proved very difficult opponents in the past and Wisbech may have the title at stake.”

Tyler Phillips made a fine unbeaten 72 and Steve Seymour added 54 as March posted 184-7 against Nassington.

But March’s bowlers, who have performed admirably all season, were unable to do their usual damage and Nassington cruised home with seven wickets to spare,

Ringham said his side’s performance had plenty of positives.

He said: “We played quite well and it was pleasing for a couple of the lads to get fifties, rather than just one person making the runs.

“I was confident we would defend 184 but it did not prove to be enough.

“We missed a few difficult chances and they rode their luck - Seymour had them playing and missing at will.

“Everything we tried did not come off, which is frustrating, but we sat down after the game and discussed the positives.

“We would like nothing more than to end the season on a high.”
