Sam Willett – Westbury CC
Willett told Sports Shots “It was a really pleasing win last weekend against Oxenford. It was important we played and won to stay in contention.
“This week is a local derby against Great Horwood and it will be a tough game as they have started the season so well.
“We have some players unavailable this week, but have a big enough squad to cope.”
Willett was skipper at Nash Road during a long playing spell at the club.
“I am full of admiration for the job the committee have done at Horwood in the last few years. To bounce back from division 2 and start well this year is a credit to them. John Goodger, Norman Ellison, Gary Lee and Alan Sirett among others were a fantastic support to me during my time there and I am sure they have played a massive part in getting the club back up again.
“They also have some great young talent, who have been nurtured over the years and are now adding value.
“The game on Saturday is important, but whoever wins the league will have to be consistent over 18 games” he added.
The two sides meet again at Westbury in the quarter-final of the Airey Cup on Saturday 6th July.
