Outlane's lead in dire jeopardy

Winter League

Preview of the Division 5 & 6 fixtures scheduled for Thursday 30 November.

With the Division 5 leaders, Outlane, having a bye this week it opens up the opportunity for the chasing pack to catch and even overtake the leaders. The next three teams could all pass them this Thursday with the right results. Springwood C only need 4 points to pass them as they already have a better total of 'Aggregate For' points. That is easier said than done as their Thursday opponents are Mirfield A who haven't lost since the opening day of the season and have promotion aspirations of their own to nuture.

Third-placed Brockholes B and 4th placed Slaithwaite could also move upwards as they go head-to-head with the winner likely to pass the leader's points total. Jackson Bridge have won their last three matches and will fancy their chances against foot-of-the-table Netherton Con B.

That just leaves Almondbury BC B and Huddersfield Recreation Club B to sort out which of them is going to be in the 2nd relegation place after they meet up this week.

The Division 6 teams will all have completed the first half of their season after this latest round of fixtures which sees the top two teams going up against each other. Linthwaite Hall hold a 12 points lead over New Mill C and if they don't cut back that advantage then the rest of the season is in danger of becoming a bit of a procession to the inevitable outcome of the Linthwaite team taking the title in their first season in the League.

Lockwood Con B will also be hoping to narrow the gap to the leaders as they are level on points in equal 2nd place and take on strugglers Kirkheaton Con B this week. Mirfield B are still looking for their first win of the season and will be pushed to get that this week against the home team from Huddersfield RUFC. Broad Oak and Golcar C&BC hold down 7th and 6th positions and are level on points so lots to play for here as well.
