Skipper satisfied by successful start
EVERYTHING is going according to plan for Dorking Cricket Club.
A third of the way through the Ryman Surrey Championship Division Five season, Dorking are second in the standings, just two points behind leaders Oxted & Limpsfield.
And captain Ben Overton knows his side are in a good position.
He said: "It's starting to go our way, results went hugely our way at the weekend, there were some really odd results, but we can't do anything about that, we're just focusing on keeping winning and seeing where that takes us.

"It's going pretty much to plan at the moment and we have a very happy camp with a lot of competition at the club as well, which is good because we have not had that for a while."
Dorking face mid-table Hampton Wick Royal this weekend, but Overton admitted to being a bit "arrogant" when it came to who his side would be facing each week.
He added: "As arrogant as this sounds, I'm not worried about who we have to play week to week because if we perform how we have been and how we know we can then there's no one in this league that will beat us."
Varun Sethi and Francis Chadwick took five wickets each in the six-wicket triumph over Mitcham on Saturday, but Overton said he was pleased to have seen his side's opponents make a few runs.
"I'm happy they got up to 191 because our top order needed to get some runs under their belt," he admitted.
"We were missing Jordan Rollins and if we had had him I don't think they would have got up to 191, but it gave out top order the chance to get some runs, which we did and it was a comfortable victory in the end."
Overton was particularly pleased to get some runs.
He said: "I have not performed this year and I do look to lead from the front and have not been able to do that yet. It's my job to do that, it's my job to get runs and get us off to a flyer and it was nice to do that."
