BILLERICAY Cricket Club skipper Lee Knight insists he is ‘fairly happy’ with how his side’s season panned out.

Billericay finished sixth in the Premier Division standings.

And Knight was pleased to have enjoyed another solid season.

“I am fairly happy with how things went this season,” said Knight.

“The second season in any division is harder than the first as the buzz and excitement from the first year has worn off and the opposition know a little more about you.

“Our personnel had changed a little as well with a few people missing from last year and a couple of guys not playing as much this time around so, all in all, finishing sixth again was a decent enough campaign.”

Billericay won seven of their 18 games but there was one particular victory which gave Knight extra satisfaction as his side saw off Brentwood, who went on to be crowned champions.

“My highlight was probably beating Brentwood at the Old County Ground by one wicket as no-one really gave us a chance, including most of our own club members,” said Knight.

“Nick Winter had been blowing sides away so to win there was a pretty big achievement.”

However, Knight will now be hoping to secure even more victories next season.

“Our aim is to keep improving,” said Knight.

“We don’t want to get to a stage where we are satisfied just staying in the division year after year because, in my opinion, that’s a dangerous approach to have.

“The focus is to improve on this year’s finishing position and see what we can do to improve in the cup competitions but we are going to enjoy the few months off in the close season too.”
