The match features the two most recently promoted clubs out of the Hampshire League, the pair having won their opening games – Sway against South Wilts and Bashley (Rydal) second teams, and Parley in relatively low scoring affairs over Havant and Trojans.
Parley make one change with Owen Morris, late of Totton & Eling, returning to his roots. He last played for Parley in 2017, when they were in HL County Division 2.
Sway: Tim Noble, John Walter, Will Crossley, Alex Hall, Dave Steadman, Hugh Bernard, Greg Jones, Jon Grasham, Richard Thomas, Steve Howe, Jon Waller.
Parley: Jacques, Collins, Morris, Bragginton, Barber, Laird, Embalagama, Green, Powell, Nicholls, Avoth.
Gosport Borough, who joint top the log after back-to-back wins over Fareham & Crofton and South Wilts, make one change - and one which should pack a punch – with seamer Muhammad Ali returning from injury and replacing the all-round talents of Charlie Pennicott against bottom side Bashley (Rydal) II.
Bashley were on the receiving end of a run mauling from Sway last week and skipper Phil Morris will demand far greater accuracy fron his bowlers at Privett Park.
Gosport Borough: Lunt, King, V.Richards, Harris, Adams, Taylor, Kitchin, Regan, Prathapasinghe, Ali, J.Richards.
Left-hand opener Tom Kent will lead the troops at Paultons, whose Australian all-rounder Callum Barton shone at Havant last week, scoring 68 and taking five wickets - in a losing cause !
Fareham & Crofton: Tom Kent, Angus Southon, Jez Bulled, Craig Jeffery, Morgan Frost, Sam Stoddart, Luke Gould, Shahryar Khan, Pete Briggs, Dan Reader, Andrew Martin.
In the other round 4 matches, Fawley host South Wilts II and Trojans entertain Havant II.
