Roffey have a dream final firmly in their sights ahead of their ECB National Club Championship quarter-final.

They welcome West of England Premier League side Bath on Sunday in the eagerly-anticipated last-eight match.

Josh Fleming’s side are just two wins away from a prestigious final and will be using that to drive them on.

Bath, who are a well-supported side, have a good history having been runners-up in 1998, 2001 and 2003, while Roffey have never made this current stage.

Fleming admitted: “I know very little about them. At this stage of the competition anyone we run into is going to be a very good side.

“It is a huge game for the club and we would all love to play in a Lord’s final, so it is a game we will certainly be up for.

“We are already as far as we have ever been and are hoping to go a couple of steps further.”

The 50-over match at Crawley Road starts at 1pm.
