Studley still hopeful of promotion after victory
6:00am Thursday 5th September 2013 in Sport
IN-FORM Studley still haven’t given up on promotion from Warwickshire League Division One after stretching their unbeaten run to seven games after Saturday’s win over Pak Shaheen.
The fifh-placed Bees are still in with a chance of finishing third as they only trail Marston Green by five points.
Hopes are high that three teams may be promoted to the Premier Division because there is a chance that no clubs from the Birmingham League Division Three will fall into the Warwickshire competition.
Studley, who were relegated from the higher level last season, were forced to drop into Division One because they did not have the clubmark award, which they have since gained - making their eligible for promotion.
Captain Steve Rose said: “It’s an exciting end to the season which we’re looking forward to.
“There’s a chance we could win promotion. We can’t catch the two top but we’re still in contention for third place, so we’ll do our best to finish as high as we can.”
Studley were far too strong for Pak Shaheen as they blew them away with an eight-wicket win.
The visitors won the toss and opted to bat first but they were kept to 203-9, with Brandon Miller and Chris Moss taking three wickets each.
Miller then hit 93 not out as Studley hit 207-2 in reply.
They now take on Marston Green away on Saturday (12.30pm start) in a match that could determine a top three finish.
Mark Swannick looks set to miss the rest of the season after injuring his hand at work.
