Captain Martin Hammond has called on Minster’s batsmen to raise their game and ease pressure on the bowlers.
Minster collapsed to 119 all out against Old Wilsonians in Division 3 of the Kent League on Saturday.
The previous week they were dismissed for 100 against Hythe.
Hammond took 6-40 as Minster went close to defending the low total, but Old Wilsonians squeezed home by one wicket.
The skipper was at least encouraged by the form of Lee Thwaites (44) and Jordan Weller (49) as Minster recovered from 11-5 and wants others to follow their example.
Hammond said: “The two boys in the middle order showed discipline at the crease and dug in. It was looking embarrassing at 11-5 but they showed guts and determination to give us a fighting chance and that’s what everyone has to do.
“We are showing more fight with the bat but we’re still not scoring enough runs.
“It’s criminal not to bat out 50 overs and if we start doing that, we’ll score 200 and put ourselves in a position to win more games.”
