ANDREW SWARBRICK insists it’s “all or nothing” as Chirk look to secure the Shropshire League Division Two runners-up spot tomorrow.

With the title seemingly beyond them - Wellington Seconds need eight points to wrap up the silverware - Chirk are aiming to join their rivals in the second-tier with a win against Forton.

But Chirk know they can’t afford to slip up against Forton, who are a place and 38 points behind their hosts with two games of the season remaining.

A second placed finish should be enough to secure promotion - it has been in recent years, and captain Swarbrick wants to wrap that up tomorrow with Lilleshall, in fourth, lying in wait on the final weekend.

“It is a big game,” declared Swarbrick. “It’s all or nothing for us and the lads are buzzing, they are itching to get out there and play the game.

“We’ve had a couple of net sessions ahead of the game after Wroxeter conceded last weekend and we can’t wait.”

Chirk completed a convincing 142-run success at Forton back in June, but Swarbrick doesn’t want his side to get ahead of themselves.

“We don’t want to be too eager,” he continued. “For 90 per cent of the year we’ve been first class and it’s important that we keep our standards high.

“But Forton will be coming to our place knowing what’s at stake and they’ve got a very good bowling attack, so we know we need to play to our best.”

Gareth Partridge, Frank MacDonald-Brown and Chris Martin miss out for Chirk, who look set to see their second string promoted as Division Eight runners-up.

Beacon Thirds have secured the title, but Chirk are out of reach of third placed Allscott Heath Thirds heading into their trip to Lilleshall Thirds.

Swarbrick is delighted to see the club’s second XI also thriving, adding: “It’s great and thoroughly deserved. We’ve seen them in action this season and the second team’s success is great to see.”

Unlike Chirk, Northop Hall are not fighting for promotion in Division One of the Liverpool Competition.

But with two games of the season remaining seventh placed Hall will be chasing a top-half finish.

Already relegated Wavertree visit Smithy Lane tomorrow, while Hall Seconds could secure a top-two finish in the Second XI Second Division with a win at Burscough Seconds and the Thirds head to South Liverpool.

With Glenn Chambers’ Pontblyddyn and Connah’s Quay’s relegation from the Premier Division confirmed and Conwy having wrapped up the Division One title, all eyes are on Halkyn and their quest for the Division Two trophy.

The Flintshire outfit just need a single point at Mynydd Isa and Maeshafn, or for second placed Bangor Seconds to not pick up a maximum 15 at Northop Seconds, to lift the title.
