Overton delighted with side's progress
THINGS are "starting to click" for Dorking Cricket Club this season.
The Pixham Lane outfit have won three of the four games they have been able to play so far this campaign, beating Kingstonian in their first non-limited overs game at the weekend.
Skipper Ben Overton described it as a "huge win".
He said: "I think we have [pulled ourselves into the early season promotion picture] with that huge win.

"Francis Chadwick and Jordie Rollins were the two standout performers for us. Francis was his normal self with the ball, he does that week in and week out, so much so that it doesn't even seem spectacular anymore. It's a privilege to have someone that good in the team.;
"Jordie bowled really well as well, super quick and hostile and he batted well too. He's a cut above, hence why he will probably make it into professional cricket."
Overton also declared himself happy with how the season had started.
He added: "I would have liked to have beaten Hampton Wick but I can't really grumble too much. In years gone by we have been at the opposite end of the table. I'm very happy, it could always be better, but it's all starting to click now."
And with the different format of the game, comes a different approach to proceedings for Dorking.
"Previously we were a bat first team, put a huge target up and back the bowlers to defend it," he said.
"But in the old format of the game, as we like to call it, we take a different view and we prefer to know what we have got to chase so we can try and control the game a little bit more and it's easier to win a game bowling first in this format."
Dorking travel to bottom side Mitcham this Saturday.
