A preview of the Division 3 fixtures scheduled for Monday 22 November
Thorpe Green 'C' are very well positioned to take full advantage of the two teams above them having to sit out a round each of the next two Monday fixture programmes. Just two points behind the long-time leaders, Rastrick 'B' and level on points with Brockholes, they should expect to push on and dislodge both opponents from their current two promotion places. Only Dalton stand in their way this week from taking over second place and they will do so with some trepidation as this will be the first of three matches for them against the top three teams in the division.
Rastrick 'B' will expect to stay top for another week as they face Milnsbridge 'B' on Monday who will be looking to recover from the mauling they took last week from Thorpe Green 'C'.
Brockholes bye-week could see them drop two places to fourth if Lindley BC 'B' can beat Huddersfield Recreation Club 'B' who are still looking for their first win since their opening day victory.
A good win for Lowerhouses 'B' this week could lift them into the top half of the table as they take on Springwood 'B' who are showing signs of settling at this level but are still in search of their first win of the season. All the action starts at 12noon on Monday at Thorpe Green with spectators welcome to watch, eat, drink and be merry and enjoy seeing the sport played in the friendly manner to which we now have come to expect of Winter League teams.
