BROMSGROVE skipper Mark Evenson hopes the Boars can secure back-to-back victories for the first time this season as their Birmingham League Division One campaign slowly draws to a close.

With another rain-affected weekend calling off all games in the division, Bromsgrove have secured their Division One status for a further year while Old Hill and Sutton Coldfield have been condemned to relegation.

And with just two games of the season remaining, Evenson is hoping the Boars can go out on a high with back-to-back outright victories, something they have failed to do all season.

The Boars first of all take on third placed Smethwick at St Godwald’s Park on Saturday before making the trip to Herefordshire-based Brockhampton next week.

Evenson said: “There’s two very tough fixtures remaining but we have proved we are more than capable of beating top sides.

“From our point of view it’d be nice to end the season with back-to-back victories to push us up the table but the only problem is we haven’t done that all season.

“If you want to push for the top three you need to be getting back-to-back wins which we have struggled to do.

“There’s still plenty to play for individually however with Alexei Kervezee who is a 100 or so runs shy of reaching 1,000.

“It will be a brilliant achievement for him as he’s been fantastic for us all season. Ashley Newfield and Jayden Levitt are also hoping to push past 600 runs.”

Ahead of the Boars’ clash against Smethwick, Evenson will hand all-rounder Matthew Anderson his first team debut as the experienced Nick Husbands is away due to work commitments.

Kervezee is also to feature in both of the Boars’ final two games of the season.
