WILTSHIRE captain Ed Young says the focus remains on the here and now as his side look to continue their excellent start to the Unicorns Championship season.

Victory away at Devon a fortnight ago saw Wiltshire make it two wins and a draw from their opening three Western Division fixtures.

They continue their schedule with a home game against bottom side Wales, which starts on Sunday at South Wilts in Salisbury.

Berkshire currently lead the way at the top of the table as the only team to win all of their three-day games this summer, but Wiltshire are only 14 points back in third.

Also looming large is a semi-final in the 50-over Unicorns Knockout Trophy, with Wiltshire drawn away against Berkshire on August 11.

A series of wins throughout August could put Wiltshire on the cusp of silverware on multiple fronts, although skipper Young has urged his team to stay in the present.

“We’re doing really well at the moment and all we can really do is try to keep winning,” said Young.

“Berkshire are at the top of the Championship table and they keep winning too, but we are doing the right things. We’ve had a fantastic start.

“We have also got that big 50-over game coming up against Berkshire, but we can only take it one game at a time.

“If you’re playing good cricket across all formats, that does help with confidence and form.

“We try to reinstall the simple beliefs over the three-day stuff of having a plan, sticking to that plan and trying to encourage a positive brand of cricket.”

Wiltshire’s previous win away at Devon was all the more impressive considering the home side were in control of the contest for the first two days.

Now returning to more familiar surroundings at South Wilts, Young sees no reason why his side’s momentum should start to stall against a Wales side who have lost all three of their Championship fixtures so far.

“I can’t fault the guys for how they’ve done,” said Young.

“To win last time was great, but to do it with Jake Lintott missing – he got 10 wickets in the previous game – is a fantastic boost for the whole squad.

“It shows we have the back-up and the whole squad is able to contribute to us winning.

“We are at South Wilts for the Wales game and it usually spins there, so it will be a good challenge.

“We are looking to carry on the momentum we have built and press for another win.”
