BURY captain Mark Nunn remains hopeful his side has got what it takes to win the Hunts County Bats Division One title.

Nunn’s side finished runners up last year but he believes his team can win the title but remains wary of title holders Worlington and Mildenhall.

He said: “We can win the league this year, we finished second last time around so we hope to go one better.

Bury come up against a Worlington side aiming for back to back league victories.

Worlington captain Graham Ford believes their title chances have improved after the signing of Craig Estlea.

“We’d like to win the title again,” he said.

Despite Mildenhall being talked up as contenders, captain Ben Shepperson insists the club are focusing on blooding youth.

He said: “The aim is to finish as high as possible but the primary objective is to give everybody a chance, we’ve also got a few guys back from university.”

Meanwhile, Ampton and Culford have pulled out of the league and folded.

Frank Stennett, co-owner of the club said: “We changed venue but the prices went up, there was no hot water, no bar and no electricity.

“Years ago Ampton was the place to come and play, we have won this division so at least we achieved something we wanted to do.”

Stennett also thanked former captain Daniel Goodwin saying the club would have folded years before without him.
