Captain looks for response after loss

Ollie Peck hopes Upminster can get back to winning ways immediately as they take on Essex League Premier Division basement boys South Woodford tomorrow (Saturday).

They slipped to a 105-run defeat against Chelmsford last weekend and although South Woodford prop up the table, Peck knows they are in for a tough game.

“South Woodford are a good side who we have had many battles with in the past and generally they are always close games between us,” he said.

“We usually play them three or four times a season, including all the cups, and though they are bottom, it’s still early doors.”

Chelmsford piled on 357-4 runs thanks to hundreds from Adil Dewan and Nick Prowting and Upminster slumped to 121-6 in reply.

Harry Jenkins and Nick O’Dell showed resistance down the order, but Peck’s side failed to get anywhere near the target.

“Chelmsford batted really well, with Nick excelling,” added Peck. “We started well, keeping the runs down, but we couldn’t take the wickets and that cost us. It was probably 80-90 runs beyond what we had hoped.

“We started well with the bat, but that slump in the middle order cost us. Nick and Harry batted well, but it was bad day at the office.”
