Corbridge close in on title
Published at 10:16, Thursday, 05 September 2013
JUST two points are needed against Stobswood Welfare to earn Corbridge the Northumberland Cricket League Division One title.
Boasting an 100 per cent record in a fantastic season, their passage back to the Premier Division is already guaranteed but they are aiming to go up as champions and they are expected to make happen on Saturday.
Stocksfield have enjoyed a decent season in the Premier and continue their campaign with a home game with Berwick, while Kirkley head to Blagdon Park.
In the reverse fixture in the Northumberland and Tyneside League, Tynedale thumped Burnopfield by 156 runs and they will hope for similar glory when they welcome the fourth placed side to Priors Flat.
Looking to claim the B2 title having clinched their promotion, Tynedale II travel to Burnopfield's second string.
Ponteland's first XV are at struggling Consett while the second teams are vice versa.
