Any 2 from 3 in Division 5 promotion & title race

Winter League

Two big outcomes still to be decided at the top of the Division 5 table on the final day of the 2022-23 season. Any 2 of the top 3 teams can still win promotion and the title is still up for grabs as well.

Almondbury BC 'B' are best placed and need 3 points to guarantee promotion and 5 points to secure the Championship. They face a resurgent Brockholes 'B' team whilst the major threat to their ambitions comes from Milnsbridge 'C'. Nothing less than an 8-0 victory will secure promotion and they need the leaders to slip up to open the door for a tilt at the title.

Thorpe Green 'C' are the third contenders but all they can do is hope that one or more of the top two slip up and offer them an opportunity to move in for the kill. They have the easiest-looking fixture on paper as they meet the bottom-of-the-table team The Rugby Club who are already doomed to collect the wooden spoon (if we had one that is).

It remains a close race for the Top Bowler award with everything depending on the last match of the season to determine the destination of the new Dave Horsfall Cup. Dave was a Milnsbridge BC bowler and there will be a few tears shed if a Milnsbridge bowler lifts the first-ever awarding of this trophy.
