PREVIEW: Potential title decider in Newborough, in-form Deeping seek fourth straight win
There's a potential title decider in Hunts Division One tomorrow (August 12, 1pm) when leaders Newborough host second place Stamford Town at St Martin's Road.
Newborough moved back to the top last weekend (August 5) with a little help from the weather. While the Bulls were beating Orton Park by three wickets, Stamford were getting washed out at Waresley seconds. Andrew Gilbert (3-25) and David Cooper (40) were Newborough’s top performers in a match reduced to 35 overs a side.
Market Deeping seek a fourth straight Lincs Premier Division win of the season tomorrow (noon) and they should get it at home to relegation-threatened Grimsby.
Cambs Division One leaders Ketton are at Eaton Socon, while second-placed Ramsey have a tricky game at Saffron Walden.
