Carew Look to Build on Positive Result

SEATON Carew recorded only their second win of the season last Saturday at Marske, but this crucial victory was enough to prise themselves, out of the bottom two relegation places.

They have only lost five times out of 12 games in this season's campaign, but have drawn five, which has not really accumulated many points for the team.

Director of Cricket Chris Nicholls was in a thoughtful mood earlier in the week: "As a team, we need to start converting the draws that we have had this season into wins and move the club out of the relegation zone. It will be a tough game against Stokesley, but on our own patch we are confident of getting the right result."

Good news for the Priorymen is that Stu Mackay and Martin Hood are both available and will go straight into the starting line-up and will certainly strengthen their team, following last week's losing draw at Great Ayton. …
