Singh is aiming high at Wolves

Skipper Amritpal Singh says promotion is the aim as Wolverhampton get going in the Birmingham League Premier Division Two this weekend.

Having added former Leicestershire bowler Atif Sheikh to their ranks, they are hosting Halesowen tomorrow.

And Singh is clear about what they want to achieve this year.

“It’s a similar group to last year. We’re looking for an overseas player to hopefully come in over the next few weeks,” he said.

“We’ve brought in Atif, who used to play for Leicestershire, but other than that it’s pretty similar to last year.

“We’re definitely looking to get promoted. That’s our main objective, really.”

Wolverhampton are also hoping to have Worcestershire’s Adam Finch available for large parts of the season.

“We’ve got a young side. Last year was a really good experience for us. We gave a lot of opportunities to fringe players and they did well,” said Singh.

“We should have Finchy available quite a bit as well from Worcestershire. He should be available for us.”

“We’ve got good experience and a lot of youth as well, so that should push us near the top.”

West Bromwich Dartmouth, beaten finalists in last year’s Graham Williamson Trophy, have bolstered their bowling with the signings of Shokair Ali and Fabad Sabir from Aston Manor and Dorridge respectively.

England’s Moeen Ali, currently playing in the IPL, could feature at some stage after being allocated as the club’s contracted county player.
