HARWICH and Dovercourt Cricket Club captain Tommy Armstrong is confident his side can have a much-improved second half of the season.

The Low Road side are precariously placed at the midway point in the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship campaign.

They are fourth from bottom in division five, having endured the frustration of a cancelled match at home to Bury St Edmunds last Saturday.

By a quirk of the fixtures, they are also without a game tomorrow, meaning a frustrating fortnight of inactivity.

However, Armstrong remains convinced that better times are on the horizon.

“Our inconsistency has let us down so far,” he told the Standard.

“Bowling-wise we’ve been fine and I feel we’ve got one of the best bowling attacks in the country.

“But we’ve struggled with the bat and that’s let us down so far."
