BARNT Green skipper Andy Sutton has called upon the club's younger players to come out of the shadows after they picked up comprehensive victories against Walsall and Wolverhampton over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Highly rated Somerset and England Under-19 prospect Tom Banton stole the show in both games with two classic batting displays.

Now Sutton is urging others to do the same as the Green look to finish the season on a high.

On Saturday the Green chased down Walsall's total of 215 all out with comparative ease as they raced to a winning 216 for four in 36 overs.

Bruce Thomason struck 61 for Walsall but his innings was put in the shade by Banton who blitzed 143 not out off 94 balls which included 21 fours.

Banton was at it again on Monday as the Green beat a tired looking Wolves side who'd lost in the semi-final of the National Clubs Knock Out the previous day.

Former Worcestershire player Aneesh Kapil cracked an almost run-a-ball 128 in a Wolves total of 244 for nine, which the Green overtook in just 28 overs with seven wickets in hand.

Jamie Harrison with 55 and Tom Brown on 62 put on 126 for the first wicket bu it was Banton's 77 not out off only 30 balls which sealed victory on 247 for three.

Sutton insisted: "Tom's 143 not out was the most mature innings I've seen him play and just underlined the talent he has.

"But I need to see more of the youngsters coming forward.

"It's great when we've got all our professionals out and playing, but we can't keep relying on them all the time.

People like Jamie Harrison, Tom Brown and Jacques Banton need to come out of their shadow and step upto the plate!

The Green will be missing Ed Pollock and Josh Poysden this Saturday when they travel to Dorridge as both will be involved with Warwickshire's NatWest Blast T20 squad for finals day at Edgbaston but Sutton is hoping to have fellow Warwickshire player Matt Lamb available.
