Bury St Edmunds’ Cricket Club captain Tom Huggins will not be relying on rivals Sudbury slipping up as their battle against the drop goes down to the final game tomorrow.

A 136-run defeat at the hands of Burwell last weekend means Bury’s place in the East Anglian Premier League has still not been assured, despite holding a 29- point advantage over their A134 neighbours.

And despite only requiring two points from tomorrow’s trip to Woolpit (10.30am) to ensure their survival, while the Talbots face the improbability of a maximum points victory at high-flying Burwell, Huggins is taking nothing for granted.

“I’m disappointed that it has gone down to the last game of the season and we won’t be relying on others,” he said.

“It is a slight consolation that Sudbury face Burwell but we want to do things properly and that means relying on ourselves.

“Nothing is assured just yet but I know we are more than capable of getting the required points.”
