Having only managed half a season in 2020, Morris is hopeful that his side will be able to get a full campaign in despite the pandemic.

Morris said: “The work the committee have done has been brilliant and we’re all so grateful for it.

“Without their hard work, we wouldn’t have managed to get half a season in last year and fingers crossed we will start on time in a couple of months and get a full season in.”

Morris has made sure that he’s kept in touch with all the players and insists that his side will be ready to go when they are given the green light.

“I always try and contact all the players as much as possible and they are all really keen and ready to go,” he added.

“It’s hard that we haven’t been able to net yet but we’re all hoping that we can join up as a squad soon.

“I’ve not been able to bring any new players in to the club at the minute but having said that I’m more than happy with the lads that we’ve got.

‘There’s a real blend in the squad of experience and youth and I’m pleased to be leading them as captain.”

Morris admits his brother and vice-captain Finlay is vital for his side, contributing with both bat and ball.

He added: “In my opinion, he’s the best player in the division and he’s really taken on the extra responsibility of being vice-captain.

“He was the league’s leading run scorer last season and his bowling seems to get better every year.

“As a club we’re in a really fortunate position to have played last year and Mike (Stones) has been able to keep the juniors interested which has kept us in a positive position.”
