Senior sides in hunt for promotions

The Seconds, Thirds and Fourths are in the promotion hunt in the L&RCL while the Ladies are also gunning for promotion to the Premier League.

Micky Ruddle's side have shown a superb run of form to win seven of their last nine completed matches (three abandoned games during that time) and sit level on points with Ashby Hastings in second spot in Division Two.

Ruddle's side host fifth from bottom Kirby Muxloe at Mill Lane this weekend. Although their position may indicate that they have very little to play for, Kirby are only one win off catapulting themselves back in to the promotion hunt with them sitting 25 points behind us.

James Preston's Thirds suffered a setback last weekend with a reverse at promotion rivals City Cricketers in Division Five West - a result that saw the gap between them and fourth placed Rothley Park shrink to one point.

With three sides going up from Division Five West this season Preston's men will be looking at getting back to winning ways this weekend when they host Hinckley Amateur Seconds at Mill Lane.

The Fourth's have a crucial three weeks ahead as they look to secure second spot and gain promotion to Division Seven.

Dave King's side currently sit 22 points shy of second placed Electricity Sports with three games to go in Division Eight East and host them at Mill Lane next weekend. Electricity Sports host first placed Wigston Town this weekend while we travel to fourth placed Queniborough Thirds, who are not out of the hunt themselves as they sit 14 points shy of us in fourth spot.

Finally, the Ladies, who are in Super Tens action on Saturday, are also in the promotion race in Division One of the WML. They face Plumtree on Sunday as they look to finish top and gain automatic promotion to the Premier Division next season.

It's going to be a fascinating run in to the end of the season with lots to play for - good luck to everyone involved!
