MIKE BARNES is eager for Northop Hall to maintain their focus as they target a third successive Liverpool Competition Division One victory.

The Flintshire outfit followed up a win over then leaders Rainford with a comfortable 91-run success against rock-bottom Wavertree.

Next-up for Hall is a home clash with Fleetwood Hesketh, who are in the relegation zone, and Barnes wants more of the same from his team.

"I want us to stay focused as we look for that third league win in a row," said captain Barnes. "It's a massive game for us, but we won't be getting carried away.

"We can't take anything for granted because that complacency can come back to bite you.

"Fleetwood haven't had the best start to the season with just one win, but it's important that we go into the game with the same attitude as we had last weekend."

Hall's weekend went from good to great as they secured a spot in the Ray Tyler Cup semi-finals against Dan Clubbe's Liverpool by beating Old Xaverians by four wickets.

"They are a good side, so it was brilliant to beat them like we did with an over to spare," said Barnes.

"It's a competition we want to do well in and to get to the last four is great, but hopefully we can go further.

"Liverpool will be tough as they are looking to get promoted from Division Two, although I feel that if we play like we can then we stand a good chance of winning the game and getting ourselves into a final."

Barnes is able to call on a full-strength Hall team tomorrow, while the second XI make their way to Alder Seconds.

Hall Thirds are at home to Birchfield Park Seconds tomorrow, with the fourth string hosting Liverpool Thirds on Sunday.
