BOURNEMOUTH hope to have seamer Matt Jones in their line-up for the trip to Hambledon in Division One on Saturday (1pm).
The University of Leicester student has returned to the Dorset area and is set to be one of two changes to the Chapel Gate side.
With Jake Hurley and Dave Kid- ner unavailable, Todd Stephens will also come into the team.
Lions captain Martin Miller said: “Matt did pre-season for us but he has since been playing at Kibworth in Leicestershire.
"He’s now back in the Bournemouth area and his brothers and his dad are playing for us already.
“He played for our third XI last week and will play for the first team on Saturday, provided we can sort out his registration.”
Bournemouth: Miller, Bridgen, Hayward, Kitson, Schmulian, Russell, Stephens, Matthews, G Singh, Cronje, M Jones.
Elsewhere, New Milton will be keen to extend their excellent run of form when they entertain Hook & Newnham Basics (1pm).
Ryan Beck’s side have five victories from as many games and hold a slender advantage over Basingstoke & North Hants at the summit.
New Milton: R Beck, L Beck, N Park, J Park, Rose, Collison, House, Watts, Elliott, Loader, Gargaro.
