ENFIELD will be without professional Martin Van Jaarsveld for up to nine games after he was called up to play for South Africa.
The all-rounder, who took six wickets against Accrington at the weekend, is expected to miss eight Lancashire League matches and the Inter-League Challenge Trophy quarter-final.
He flies home for training for the triangular Nat West Series with England and Zimbabwe on Tuesday. He hopes to be available for Enfield's home game with East Lancs on 13 July.
But despite the upset, Enfield said they had mixed feelings about his inclusion.
Club president John Hargreaves said: "On the one hand we are happy for Martin that he has been called up but it might cause a few problems for us.
"I think we will be affected more during the Saturday fixtures but the amateurs have been doing very well so far. We will just have to pull together.
"We realised that Martin could be selected and it is something we have to deal with. We hope he does well and we're sure he will."
Mr Hargreaves added that they had already begun scouting for a replacement professional.
He said: "We have a few irons in the fire at the moment. We will just have to wait and see what materialises."
- Accrington and Church will both have to travel for tomorrow's Worsley Cup second round games.
Accrington will be away to the winner of the delayed game between Bacup and Lowerhouse while Church visit East Lancs. Other pairings in the draw made on Wednesday night are Rawtenstall v Burnley and Colne v Haslingden.
Games abandoned on 3 May are now scheduled to be played next Saturday.
