ZIMBABWEAN David Brent would love to extend his stay at Frinton Cricket Club.

However, he knows that in order to be asked back, he has to maintain his high standards for the Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League side.

Brent played a starring role in last week’s success at Burwell.

Batting in tandem with Gi Dilruk (38 not out), he kept a cool head to take the visitors over the line with four wickets and nine overs in hand, finishing on 29 not out.

He also took a couple of key wickets as Burwell batted first and were all out for 208.

“It’s been a pleasure, playing for Frinton,” said the 19-year-old.

“People here have been so friendly and I feel very welcome, which is the main thing for me, being so far from home.

“If I get asked back, I’m sure I’d take that opportunity.

“I could see it happening, but we’ll have to see how the season goes.

“I know I have to do well for the team in order to get that invitation and it was nice to play a part in last week’s victory.

“It was good to get a few runs but I was also very happy to take some wickets, because I haven’t been too pleased with my bowling.

“I didn’t start the season especially well but have got used to the conditions since then and feel good in the nets and in matches.

“Now it’s just a question of taking opportunities when they come along.”

Frinton now switch their attention to Saturday’s match at home to Copdock and Old Ipswichian.
