OLD Hill skipper Jonathan Wright is keen for his side to build on their first league win of the season.

They beat C&R Hawks by 131 runs away from home last Saturday to get back on track after two defeats from their opening two fixtures in Division Two of the Birmingham and District Premier League.

Joe Samuels, batting at four, hit 54 as Old Hill made 213-8 from their 50 over after winning the toss and choosing to bat.

Aamir Manzoor and debutant Australian medium pacer Matthew Ellul then steamed through the Hawks batting line-up.

Manzoor took six wickets for the loss of 25 runs will Ellul bagging 4-54 as their opponents were all out for 82 in only the 20th over.

Wright was delighted with the win and wants to carry the momentum forward. He said: "It was great to get the win but it was the manner in which we did it that was most pleasing.

"We battled hard to get to 213 with a few bumps along the way, but Joe Samuels batted brilliantly.

"We have been trying to instil in the side a determination and an understanding that things don't always go your way and that sometimes you have to battle and fight to get to the position you want. It was a tricky wicket but we were rewarded for our patience and bottle.

"We have then blown them away with the ball and got a great win.

"It's important we carry that momentum forward now, starting this Saturday. All four of our sides won last weekend so there is a lot of positivity around the place."

It proved a good weekend for the Haden Hill side when they followed that up with a 64-run victory over Kidderminster in the National Knock-out Cup a day later.

They will now look to secure back-to-back league wins when they host Pershore this Saturday (noon start).
