Evenson: Bank Holiday fixtures could be make or break for Bromsgrove

SKIPPER Mark Evenson believes the Bank Holiday fixtures could make or break Bromsgrove’s Birmingham League Division One season.

Third placed Boars are well in the mix for promotion to the Premier Division but face two difficult away games over the weekend.

Evenson’s side firstly travel to county rivals Barnards Green on Saturday before making the trip to Bridgnorth on Monday.

And with games against Moseley and Smethwick, who currently occupy the two promotion places, on the horizon, Evenson understands how crucial this weekend could be.

“This time of year is always make or break for teams,” he said.

“If we lose the two games we could end up mid-table but if we win them both then promotion is in our own hands.

“However, we are making sure we do not look at the bigger picture and just take it one game at a time.

“We will concentrate on Saturday first when we take on a Barnards Green side which has some of the Worcestershire contingency.

“If we get the basics done right I am sure we can get a positive result moving into our Bridgnorth game.”

Bromsgrove go into their Bank Holiday fixtures on the back of a 36-run victory at Wellington.

Openers Ashley Newfield (59) and Jayden Levitt (43) set the Boars on their way as they survived a middle order collapse to recover from 159-7 to reach 197 all out.

Evenson (3-31), Alexei Kervezee (2-29) and Newfield (2-24) then shared the wickets as Wellington were hustled out for 161 in the 47th over in their reply.
