TENBURY Cricket Club player Tom Rawlings says that there is a "lot of hunger" back in the team this season after failing to record a win last year.

The team managed to achieve their first win in two seasons last week with a 58-run triumph against Alveley.

They could not sustain their winning run last Saturday against Netherton and fell to a five-wicket defeat.

But, Rawlings says that there were still positives to take out of the game and is confident that the team can consolidate their position in the league.

"After last week's fantastic win against Alveley, there is a lot of hunger back into the team and we fight to the end," said Rawlings.

"We thought we could have scored a few more runs against Netherton, but were happy with 178.

"However, they have been an established Division Two team for a while, so we knew that they are a good side.

"We are away to Avoncroft on Saturday, who have just come up.

"But, we beat them quite comfortably at their place in 2011 when we went on to win the Division Four championship.

"It is one of the best batting wickets and there is a lot of pace and bounce on the pitch.

"We will certainly be going there to win the game."

Zack Yarranton (39) and Aaron Morris (32) were the pick of the batsmen for Tenbury in their 177-9 score.

However, Netherton's opening pair of Russell Oseland and Troy Lee posted 69 runs between them in the chase-down and the away side managed to win with 4.1 overs spare.

Ed Corfield (2-35) and Tom Gloster (2-31) were the pick of Tenbury's bowlers.
