Ardleigh Green captain Lloyd Edwards keen to continue winning streak and climb up the Shepherd Neame Essex League Division Three table.

Edwards and his side host Stanford-le-Hope on Saturday as they look to make it three wins on the spin after a poor start to the campaign.

The skipper believes every match is vital at this stage of the season to help them achieve their pre-season targets.

“We’ll be looking to continue our winning streak by doing much of the same really,” Edwards said.

“We’ll look to keep bowling tight and with a good batting performance this week we’re very confident of getting the win that we want.

“Every win is important to us now to get up to where we would like to be, made even more so against Stanford at the weekend as there are two places below us, but if they win they could leapfrog us.”

The captain says his side will not focus on their opponents too much as it often leads to over-thinking and instead will concentrate on their own performances.

“Obviously we look at the results of the other teams and who’s been scoring runs and taking wickets, but you cant over think things sometimes.

“It is all about that day and what happens on it, so we will just focus on what we have been doing and do what we are capable on our day.”

Ardleigh Green are set to have everyone available for selection this weekend and Edwards admits he has some decisions to make.

“We have everyone fit for this weekend,” he said.

“We are getting stronger every year as a club so not only are there people returning this week, but also people playing in our twos that are knocking on the door who are more than capable to play first team cricket which gives me the good type of selection issues.”

They go into the match on the back of six-run victory against Westcliff last weekend and Edwards was pleased to edge the game, adding: “In the end it could’ve been a lot more comfortable.

“Having said that Westcliff also had a fast start. I thought we showed great mental strength to keep going and we did really well to peg them back from that.”
