Birmingham League the target

First published in Sport

COLWALL vice-captain Tom Coleman believes he will have to have a near perfect second half of the season to match last season’s runs total of 1424.

Coleman’s total helped his team get promoted at the first time of asking last season but he believes he could have scored more.

He said: “I thought I should have got more last season, I got a lot of 50s and 60s but didn’t go on and get a hundred which doesn’t really get noticed."

He went on to say that he felt playing in a lower division had a lot to do with it as that made it a lot easier to score so many runs.

After a few years of relegations and promotions between Divisions One and Two, Colwall are now in a position to challenge for promotion to the Birmingham League.

Coleman said: “It would be fantastic if we did get promoted, we seem to have a knack of winning - which is nice.

“There’s always a chance, we’ve beaten teams like Bromyard who everyone thought we’re going to be strong and we beat Worcester first game of the season.

“We went into the season aiming at avoiding relegation so to be where we are is good.”
