Preview of Division 1 fixtures for 27 October 2021
It is a top v bottom clash this week in Division 1 of the Winter League. Early leaders Lower Hopton take on bottom of the table Rastrick 'A' at Milnsbridge on Wednesday starting at 12noon. Lower Hopton have made the best possible start to their Winter League membership with two straight 8-0 wins and lead the table by 2 points. Whilst their opponents, Rastrick 'A', have struggled to collect 2 points from their matches against Lowerhouses 'A' and Milnsbridge 'A'. Seems there can only be one outcome but this is bowling and anything can happen.
It is a bye week for second-placed Lindley BC 'A' and the two teams level with them on 14 points meet up as Thorpe Green 'A' take on Kirkheaton Cons with, at least, 2nd place awaiting the winner. A close encounter is expected when Milnsbridge 'A' meet Clayton West with 2 points between them after one win each from their first 3 matches.
The New Millers return to action after a week off and go up against Lowerhouses 'A' in the final of the four Division 1 fixtures for this week. It all starts at 12noon at Milnsbridge where spectators are welcome and refreshments are available for all.
