Dimbleby returns to pose questions
EXPERIENCED all-rounder Paul Dimbleby retakes his place in the first team tomorrow as Caistor Town travel to Cherry Willingham 1sts (1pm).
The Brigg Road side have been without their talisman for the last three Lincolnshire County League Premier Division fixtures – a run that has brought one win and two defeats.
Now back in action, Dimbleby is likely to open the bowling and bat in the middle order.
Captain Liam Wood has also recalled Peter Briggs and wicketkeeper Gareth Johnson – Andrew Pearson, Peter Jacob and Tom Boryszczuk all miss out.
Meanwhile, Kevin Parker's second team will be looking to make home advantage count tomorrow as they host local rivals Keelby 1sts (1pm start).
Speaking ahead of the clash, Wood said: "Having Paul back in the side is going to be huge for us, and our chances going forward.
"His bowling and batting have been missed in the last couple of weeks. Paul has been in great form again this season."
With just one victory in four division two outings, it has been a difficult year for Caistor but Parker has an almost full strength roster at his disposal.
Lewis Jefferson and Kieran Brooker both return, while Pearson and Boryszczuk drop down from the first team.
Ernie Allison's third team will have to wait an extra day for their second division match of the season – they entertain Keelby 2nds on Sunday (1.30pm start).
Seamer Alex McKitton makes his first Lincolnshire County League appearance of the season, while youngsters Jordan Graves and Ben Barrick are handed another chance to impress.
Tom Boryszczuk takes his young Cougars to Barton Town Vikings on Sunday (2pm start).
