ASTON Rowant continue their Barbados bid when they host Reigate Priory in Sunday’s Club Conference Cup semi-final (1.30).

The winners of the competition, now known as the Barbados & Smile Group Travel Cup, will represent the conference in a tournament in the Caribbean.

Should Rowant win the 45-over contest, they will play either Blackheath, Bromley or Sunbury in the final at a neutral venue on Bank Holiday Monday, August 25.

But batsman Chris Watling said: “We are not geting carried away, we are taking it game by game.

“It’s a good competition. It’s not as big as the national knockout, but it has a great prize.”

Watling, Tim Morgan and Gordon Harris are added to Saturday’s league squad, but Chris Leaney drops out.

Aston Rowant: Morrick (capt), Ferraby, J Smith, Cook, Hammond, Bethell, Penhale, Muttitt, Reid, Kazmi, Watling, Morgan, Harris.
