NORTHOP HALL will be going all out for victory in their crunch Liverpool Competition Division Two clash with promotion rivals Old Xaverians.

Dave Kennedy’s Flintshire outfit make their way to the league leaders, who are 13 points better off than third placed Hall with four games of the season remaining.

With second placed Caldy, who have played a game more than their promotion rivals, facing lowly St Helens Town, Kennedy knows this could be a pivotal weekend.

“It’s a massive game,” declared Kennedy, who returns to captain the side this weekend with Jamie Griffiths unavailable.

“We’ve got to go there in a positive mindset and looking to win the game.

“There get out of jail card is that they can probably afford to draw the game, so it will be interesting to see how they approach things.

“We are going there to win.”

Old Xaverians have climbed to the top of the table courtesy of seven successive victories, a run of form that Kennedy isn’t taking lightly.

“There are on a great run,” he continued. “It will be a tough game at their place, they are a good outfit and we need to be at our best to win.

“It would be a great game to win, it would move us above them in the table and give us another boost heading into the final few games, where we’ve also got to play Caldy.

“It’s a three-horse race.”

Ed Markey is available once more for Hall before he heads back to France.

Hall Seconds are also in action tomorrow as they entertain Leigh Seconds looking to further boost their battle with the drop from the Second XI First Division.

In Shropshire County League Division Three, Overton, beaten by 83 runs by Chelmarsh last week, head to Church Stretton.
