SWANAGE captain Ryan Norman had his sights set on survival at the start of the season – but his side could seal the Dorset Funeral Plan League title on Saturday.

Having won at Sherborne by 36 runs, Norman's men hold a nine-point advantage over second-place Broadstone heading into the teams' vital clash.

And the skipper is desperate for Swans to prevail in the showpiece game on home soil.

Norman told the Daily Echo: "At the start of the year, with the availability I thought I was going to have, I was looking to try to stay up.

"But this is a nice position to be in. It's still in our hands, effectively. We have the points at the top and Broadstone have to beat us.

"It could be decided this week but it might not be. It would be really nice to do it at home and would cap a really good season."

Swans travel to Dorchester in their final game of the league campaign, while Broadstone entertain Martinstown.

Norman and co reached 173 with nine wickets down against Sherborne, Craig Wells hitting an unbeaten 81 and Ian Booth (44) and Steve Kent (29) also contributing.

Pete Richards recorded terrific figures of four for 16 to stunt the hosts' reply, Kent completing an impressive day's work with three for 35.
