After Friday night‘s T20 fun (at home to Dukinfield Stags, 6pm), Saturday sees the 1st XI looking to keep the winning feeling going, while the 2nd XI will dust themselves down & go again after last week’s blip.

Adam Hawley’s men welcome Royton CC to Sycamore Park for a 1pm start. Last season’s Division 1A runners-up have faced similar opposition to ourselves in the form of Greenfield, Prestwich, Roe Green & Monton to date. Unfortunately for them, whereas we took 3 wins and an abandonment from those games to add to our win at Flixton on the opening day, the visitors recorded 3 defeats and an abandonment, to which last week’s defeat at Woodhouses can be added. So, after our top-of-the-table match at Roe Green last weekend, it’s top versus bottom on Saturday, but there can be no room for complacency as The Paddock outfit will be looking to kick-start their 2019 campaign.

Also on Saturday, Danny Hall’s 2nd XI head pretty much in the opposite direction, when they travel to Werneth CC (Chamber Road, Oldham OL8 1AA) for a 1.30pm start. The hosts head into the game on the back of 2 defeats, most recently at early pace-setters Saddleworth. Having won 2 of their first 3 games and, like everyone else, been washed out on Matchday 2, they sit in mid-table on 12 points – 5 behind ourselves, so the importance of a 5 (or 6, with a bonus) point win is obvious to both sides.

On to Sunday, and there’s a tasty-looking derby in prospect, as the third-placed 3rd XI make the short trip to Denton West CC (Windsor Park, off Windsor Road M34 2HB) at 2pm. West’s third-string top the Sunday Division A table with 4 straight wins to date – the first 3 of which were by convincing margins, before a rather tighter affair in the “other” Denton derby last time out. Let us hope we can put a dent in the hosts’ 100% record on Sunday afternoon!

Good luck to all our teams this weekend – as always, home or away, the lads would love to have your support!
