Purley captain Keith Medlycott is eyeing safety in Surrey Championship Division One following back-to-back wins.

James Scott's unbeaten 78 on Saturday helped them to a seven-wicket win over relegation rivals Walton-on-Thames, following up last week's shock win over leaders Spencer.

Although Purley are still bottom they are now level with Epsom, who they face on Saturday, and just six points behind Walton-on-Thames and East Molesey.

"We are in with the pack now which is pleasing," said Medlycott.

"We have played some decent cricket in the last six weeks but now a couple of wins has made it quite exciting and it's nice to be in the mix.

"Three or four sides are looking at themselves now thinking they must play some great cricket in the final four games to stay up.

"They are all going to be massive games now but more so when both sides are down there so it is a big game this weekend but it will be every week until the end of the season."

Medlycott also had special praise for 21-year-old Scott, who has scored 225 runs in the last two matches.

"James has played magnificent," he said.

"His 147 against Spencer was an outstanding innings and he's followed that up now with another good score.

"He didn't get carried away and played a natural innings.

"It's been a while coming for someone of his ability and I think even he would admit that."
