FRINTON Cricket Club skipper Mark Jones says the club must strive for a top-half finish in their first Gibbs Denley East Anglian Premier League season.

The Ashlyns Road outfit currently lie fourth in the table with four matches remaining, following last weekend’s draw against Norwich.

Frinton have so far enjoyed a productive campaign, following their promotion as Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship winners last year.

The Costal side have more than held their own in the Premier League – and skipper Jones wants them to finish a satisfying season strongly.

Jones said: “We’ve had a decent season so far – we have four games left and we want to consolidate our position. A top-half finish would be a good achievement in our first season back in the EAPL.

“We’re learning the format and we’ll be better for that, next season.

“It’s also a good thing that our seconds are holding their own in Two Counties Championship division one.

“It’s been a good year for us so far and the club are moving forward well.”

After their shock defeat at lowly Horsford the previous week, Frinton had to settle for a draw against Norwich.

Wicket-keeper Craig Perrin scored an unbeaten half-century in the hosts’ total of 199 for nine but the visitors held on for a draw, on 83 for eight.

Frinton travel to play fourth-from-bottom Woolpit on Saturday.
