WOODLANDS have the chance to secure a stunning treble tomorrow by beating Sheriff Hutton Bridge in the Yorkshire Premier Leagues' Championship at Headingley, and their former captain has hailed the impact of one man in particular.

Overseas star Brad Schmulian, from New Zealand, blasted 122 in the Championship semi-final win over Doncaster Town last weekend, but opener Tim Jackson said that was just par for the course.

He said: "Brad has made a big difference this season. He scored 600-odd runs in the league and virtually won us the Priestley Cup final against New Farnley with his 68 not out.

"He's chipped in with 30 odd wickets too so that's been a big plus."

Ex-skipper Jackson, who hit 41 against Doncaster, admitted he was pleased with his own efforts this season, but said he believed that giving up the captaincy had not affected his form.

He said: "It's nice to be in good form, particularly towards the end of the season in crucial games. Hopefully I can play well again in the final.

"People might claim the captaincy was hanging over me before but when you're batting, you just concentrate on your own game so I don't think it affected me.

Laughing, he added: "But maybe the statistics have proved those people right."

The man who has taken over as captain is Cieran Garner, and Jackson enthused: "Cieran's done a great job. He's brought the team together and got stuck in to score crucial 30s or 40s for us.

"But everyone's played well and chipped in the this season. We've had runs at the top of the order and the bowlers have backed it up."

Each individual will need to chip in again tomorrow, with Woodlands facing a tough ask in order to secure that coveted treble.

Yorkshire CCC's Matt Fisher shone in Bridge's big semi-final win over Richmondshire, scoring 87 and taking four wickets.

He might not be available for the final, due to county commitments, but Jackson said his side are prepared for him anyway.

He mused: "We're aware of their bowling threat, the Yorkshire lads like Matt Fisher and Karl Carver, but we're not too sure what they're like in the batting department.

"I do think it will be a pretty even game though."
