EL Classico takes place in the Premier Division tomorrow!

It's not Real Madrid against Barcelona, but instead it's Llay versus Gresford.

Described by former Llay skipper Nathan Humphreys as 'El Classico', it should see the return of Jack Billington for the hosts after he missed last week's match-up with Northop due to illness.

"We were well beaten by Northop and we didn't bat well enough on a good wicket," said Llay skipper Tom Crewe.

"Luckily, other teams around us lost heavier.

"We're still adjusting to 10 overs per bowler, which I feel will make a big difference to the league this year and there'll likely be many higher scoring games than previous years.

"We need to be setting better totals to compete at this level."

Gresford could take over at the top of the table with a victory and skipper Matt Thompson said: "It's quite a friendly rivalry and everyone gets on quite well.

"We have done well.

"Against Mold we were missing four or five players and we were lacking depth.

"We were really reliant on our frontline bowlers."

On the possibility of going top, Thompson added: "That thought had crept into my mind!

"But with it being against Llay, we will have to focus getting over the line."

Simon Perry and Sam Thompson are in contention for spots in the Gresford side.

After two cracking wins, Northop find themselves level at the top with Menai Bridge.

It's a huge clash tomorrow as they host last season's champions St Asaph.

Northop skipper Richie Walker, who will have a full strength side, said: "We lost our first three games last year and it's a really good start for us.

"We have played five games so far this year and we have won all five.

"We have generally got a good squad and everyone is available."

Looking ahead to the St Asaph test, Walker added: "We have got to be confident, haven't we?

"But they are a very, very strong team.

"If they don't win the league, I will be very surprised."

Brymbo's tough start to the season continues tomorrow.

They've already played defending champions St Asaph and next up is a home clash with early season frontrunners Menai Bridge.

"I would rather that than having to have them at the back end of the season," said Brymbo skipper Dan Parry.

"This year, we're quite happy with the fixtures.

"From the end of July, we don't go on the coast."

Runs haven't been an issue so far for Brymbo, with two centurions in the opening fortnight.

The latest of these is James Claybrook, who struck a brilliant ton in last weekend's 44-run triumph over Pontblyddyn.

Claybrook has also been included in the North Wales side that will play Cumbria on May 17.

"There's not many better than James Claybrook in our league," added Parry.

"He's one person I wouldn't want to bowl against."

Seth Agard, from Barbados, will finally make his first Brymbo appearance tomorrow, with Oli Sheldrake going back to the second team.

"They will want to beat us, they always do," said Parry about Menai Bridge.

"They will want to push St Asaph as much as they can.

"I don't think they will be coming for anything else less than a win."
