Eason told Sports Shots:

Our Pre-season has gone very well which will hopefully stand us in good stead for the 2019 season.

We have made some good additions to the squad and there is a healthy competition for places, which can only help us gain positive results, as we would love to improve on where we finished in the table this season.

On Sunday, Horspath go to last year’s runners-up in the Royal London Club Championship, Stanmore after defeating Chesham in the previous round.

Eason told Sports Shots:

We did well to stay up and it is now important that we progress and push on.

Player-wise, we have recruited seamer Liam Manley from Great & Little Tew, Will Hawton joins from Banbury and will be available once his university commitments are over in June, plus we’ve brought in Oxford Brookes duo Elliot Miles and Will Robertson.

It will also be an advantage to have an overseas available for the whole season with experienced South African Darryl Brown coming in to the side.

James Phillips is available again for us, which again is a boost.
