Alan Towe's BICC Preview - 21st/22nd April

Devon v Warwickshire Warwickshire will be playing their final away fixture of the season in the Premier Division of the BDO Inter County Championships this coming weekend when they line up against Devon at the Heavitree Social Club, Exeter. The hosts look doomed to relegation to division one as they are currently bottom of the table on 106 points, a massive 27 points short of safety. A win for Warwickshire is fully expected from the game which could see them move up the table to a higher position than what they currently hold which is seventh. Selected to play for Warwickshire are Men’s ‘A’:- Steve Hine, Kevin Dowling, Nigel Heydon, Mark Westgarth, Noel Grant, Antony Allen, Tom Aldridge, Tom Ryan, Dean Stewart, Carl Green, Simon Power, Charlie Symons, Men’s ‘B’:- Luke Kennedy, James Hykin, Ian Shaw, Karl Reynolds, Ashley Hykin, Rob Comben, Mark Carter, Anthony West, Richard Foster, Adam Paxton, Tom McGlone, Jack Wareing, Reserves:- David Hill, Gareth Braham, Mark Strong, Jamie Hughes, Prakash Jiwa, Matt Edgar, Ted Evetts, Women’s ‘A’:- Caroline Pike, Sue Gulliver, Wendy Adams, Nina Bolt, Marian Conway, Kat Spanswick, Women’s ‘B’:-Donna Pinch, Helen Rigg, Angela Jones, Melanie Jones, Chloe McKivett, Denise Keyte, Reserves:- Ann Rodgers, Lisa Deslandes, Tracey Edgecombe, Lucy Keyte.
Middlesex v Shropshire This coming weekend Shropshire will complete their nine games season in division four of the BDO Inter County Championships with an away fixture against Middlesex. Middlesex are just two places above Shropshire in the table but have 28 points more so the chance of overtaking them is a little remote. Pembrokeshire are just above Shropshire, 17 points to the good with 134 points and that too looks to be too much for Shropshire to even draw level with them. Nevertheless Shropshire will be fighting for pride in their final game and a win to end the season would go a long way after only recording one win in their previous eight games which was a 19-17 success against bottom of the table Isle of Wight. Selected to play for Shropshire are Men’s ‘A’:- Jamie Barrowman, Paul Bromley, Andi Chatter, Derek Coulson, Pete Eley, Chris Fox, Brian Hickman, Danny James, Richard Parker, Simon Pritchard, Nathan Storar, Adam Thackray, Men’s ‘B’:- Chris Burford, Craig Capewell, Andy Gilbert, Andre Knox, Darren Lane, Darren Manning, Neil Powell, Martin Riggs, Darryl Sheldon, Trevor Smith, Rob Trumper, Matt Williams, Reserves:- Glen Sewell, Joe Cook, Colin Hill, Pete Thackray, Neville Qunton, Women’s ‘A’:- Stephanie Clarke, Sophie Fawcett, Julie Griffiths, Kat McLean, Michele Pritchard, Marie Riggs, Women’s ‘B’:- Allison Gallagher, Tracey Knox, Sue Lane, Cheryl Owen, Julie Pugh, Lisa Wills, Reserves:- Debbie Davies (Capt).
West Midlands v Glamorgan West Midlands will complete their first season’s fixtures in the Premier Division of the BDO Inter County Championships this coming weekend when they play hosts to Glamorgan. It will not be an easy game for the home team as their opponents are some 14 points and three places to the good on them, however it is a game in which West Midlands need a result to ensure their survival in the top flight as they are only nine points better off than Cambridgeshire who next to bottom of the table Lining up for the West Midlands will be Men’s ‘A’:- Mark Craddock, Keith Allman, Gavin Baker, Michael Baker, Scott Baker, Shaun Carroll, Alfie Jacques, Ian Jones, Ash Khayatt, Glen McGrandle, Dean Mills, Danny Nicholls, Men’s ‘B’:- Matthew Dicken, Adam Edgar, Martin Greenwood, Sam Guest, Jonathan Platt, Richard Platt, Neil Pointon, Shane Price, Avtar Singh, Jordan Singh, Robert Smith, Paul Wells, Reserves:- Danny Coyle, John Mycock, Paul Price, Gary Watts, Women’s ‘A’:- Kim Fellows (Capt), Gemma Barrett, Sarah Roberts, Lisa Badger, Debbie Loon, Kath Jenkins, Women’s ‘B’:- Elizabeth Arnold, Shellbie Simmons, Heather Wright, Grace Angell, Jacqueline Maiden, Shannon Hall, Reserves:- Sophie Singh, Kelly Dolman, Claire Hobbs.
Derbyshire v Berkshire Despite having made it three consecutive wins in division three of the BDO Inter County Championships Derbyshire have a tough task this coming weekend when they play hosts to top of the table Berkshire at The Pinxton Village Hall, Kirkstead Road, Pinxton, NG16 6NA. The wins have taken Derbyshire up three places off the foot of the table but points are still at a premium if they are to avoid relegation for a third successive season. Currently Derbyshire are on 132 points with the two teams directly below them Wiltshire and Norfolk both on 131 with bottom of the table Tyne and Wear only another two points adrift on 129. Thankfully after this weekend’s fixture, Derbyshire still have one more game to play and that is another home tie which is a rearranged fixture against Wiltshire being played on the weekend of the 19th and 20th May, that could well be a relegation decider.
