WITHAM Cricket Club are preparing for what is arguably the biggest game in the club's history this weekend.

They host Eaton Socon CC in the final of the East Anglian Premier League play-offs on Saturday, with a place in the East Anglian Premier League at stake.

Witham were comfortable winners on the road to Norfolk Champions Downham Stow last Sunday.

Captain Jake Wakelin was delighted with his team, as they won by nine wickets.

He said: "We were right on it from ball one on Sunday and our bowlers were excellent and were backed up by a really good fielding display.

"We got wickets at the right times and after restricting a very good Downham side to 160 odd we were confident of getting home on what was a very good wicket."

Michael Godwin batted nicely for 71 and Kaan Hawes the same for his 40.

"The boys were full of excitement in the changing room but there were no celebrations as we know we haven't achieved anything yet," added Wakelin.

"The Premier League has been our aim for the last few years now and we know that we are one game away from potentially achieving something very special.

"The buzz around the entire club is amazing at the moment and everybody not just the players can't wait for the weekend.

"Any game at this level is going to be a tough game to win but as a team we are desperate to get out there and play our best cricket.

"I can imagine there will be big crowd on the day and we are really looking forward to getting out there on what will be an incredible occasion for the club.

"It is great moment to be able to host a game like this and we welcome everybody along to what promises to be a great advert for local cricket."
