Wells slip into relegation zone
Wells captain Evert Bekker has urged his team mates to bounce back from a disastrous weekend which saw them lose to relegation rivals Canterbury and get knocked out of the cup.
It means they have now slipped into the relegation zone by four points after the eight wicket loss on Saturday, which was followed up on Sunday with a 22 run defeat in east London to Wanstead and Snaresbrook in their last 16 round match in the ECB National Knockout.
But Bekker knows it is important for his players to pick themselves up before they take on Sevenoaks in the league tomorrow, and Chingford at the Nevill on Sunday, in the last 16 of the CCC.
“It’s important for us to bounce back,” he said. “We are putting in half performances, but we are looking strong with the ball. We need to believe in our ability and play with authority, if we do that we are very confident we can win.”
He is eager to keep the cup run going as well as striving for survival in the league, with half a dozen games left.
“We look at it with a very simple mindset, if we perform we know results will come,” he said. “We cannot worry too much about where other sides are in the league, everyone knows that.
“We have got six games left to win as many as we can. They are very important to us, we have been playing very well in the cup, and we hope that will continue.
“We don’t want that to detract from the league, we are very keen to stay in that league. They are both equally important, we want to perform in both.”
