BOURNEMOUTH head coach Will Croker hopes his side’s pivotal home clash with Maidenhead attracts a bumper crowd.

The teams are tomorrow set to lock horns at Chapel Gate (3pm), in what could be a defining encounter in the race for the second-place South West Premier play-off spot.

With Dings Crusaders set to claim the league title, Lions are in the driving seat to join them in the top-two.

They are one point ahead of Maidenhead with four regular league fixtures remaining.

Croker told the Daily Echo: “Being involved at the business end of the season is incredibly exciting.

“Everyone has been putting out the promotional flyers and trying to get friends and family to watch, we want to get a bumper crowd and I’m hopeful the community will get behind us.

“Every voice will make a huge difference and I ask the people of Bournemouth who like their sport to come along and cheer on the boys.

“It’s a big day and we can take a giant step towards the play-off spot with a win.”

Newton Abbot are the other team in contention of reaching the top two. They are scheduled to visit Bournemouth on Saturday, April 14.
