Moseley need points from final weekend

THE cricket season draws to a close tomorrow, and despite disastrous summer weather, the amount of abandoned games was actually lower than last year.

THE cricket season draws to a close tomorrow, and despite disastrous summer weather, the amount of abandoned games was actually lower than last year.

The Midlands cricket programme was a total washout last week but with one game remaining there is still plenty to play for.

Moseley host WB Dartmouth in a crunch Birmingham & District Premier League game that will decide who is relegated into the First Division.

A win, or a winning draw will guarantee top flight cricket for the Scorers side next year, but a defeat could also keep them in the division if other results go their way.

Knowle & Dorridge could equal last season's achievements and finish as runners-up if they beat Barnt Green at Cherry Hill Road, and Himley are thrashed at Kenilworth Wardens.

Dorridge were celebrating a solid campaign after retaining their First Division status following last season's promotion. They take on Shrewsbury tomorrow.

However, the abandoned games last week meant that Olton & WW will probably miss out on promotion as they trail second place side Brockhampton by 16 points. The Grange Road side face Oswestry at home tomorrow.

In Division One of the Boundary Sports Warwickshire League Offchurch Lapworth's chances of catching Pickwick P&M were also dealt a major blow as the rain wiped out all the league action.

A mammoth battle will take place tomorrow as the two line up against each other. A win for Pickwick will guarantee them promotion, however Lapworth must convincingly beat their opponents to earn enough points to leapfrog them in the table.

But in Division Two, Marston Green's long battle to stay in the division looks doomed as they remain at the foot of the table with just one win to their name all season.

Anything other than a win against high-flying Four Oaks Saints will see them relegated, however a victory may not be enough as fellow strugglers Attleborough and Sphinx Coventry line up against each other. Ambleside need just five points to retain their place in the division for next season.
