League standards are on the up

TANWORTH and Camp Hill skipper Andy Turnbull believes the standard of cricket being played in the top flight of the Cotswold Hills League is on the up – and that has been helped with more overseas players linking up with clubs.

The Tanworth Lane side go into this weekend’s match at Shipston just three points behind Premier Division leaders Bretforton with Kineton a further three points adrift.

Turnbull said: “We need to make sure we get to the turn as close as we can and then go big second half.

“I think the overall standard of the league has improved, that’s certainly something we’ve noticed since returning to the Premier in 2022. I do think there are six or seven teams that can all beat each other but I’m expecting Kineton, Bretforton and ourselves to be up there at the end of the season. That said, the likes of Shipston are very capable of turning up on their day and getting a result.

“Ben Bryant is our overseas and he’s started the season well. He has settled in really well and it’s good to see more overseas players back in the league as there had been a dip. It’s good because it raises the standard.”
