SEVEN games stand between Chirk and the possibility of promotion.

Luke Gardner's side still lead the way in Division One of the Shropshire League and next up is tomorrow's home clash with Shrewsbury Seconds, who still harbour top-two hopes of their own.

Chirk go into the match after last weekend's win over Worfield, spearheaded by opener Wynn Jones' stunning century.

"I'm struggling to put into words how excellent Wynn's innings was," said Gardner.

Jones didn't give a single chance during his unbeaten knock of 103, while Liam Walker - described as the "right-handed Trent Boult" - played his part during the second portion of the afternoon with three wickets.

A number of key players are unavailable for tomorrow's meeting with Shrewsbury.

Andrew Swarbrick, Nick Flack, Mark Shaw and James Carter are all out.

"We haven't got the biggest depth in the squad," added Gardner.

"We have probably got 15 players for the first team that can come in."

Chester Boughton Hall's Cheshire Premier League title hopes suffered a serious blow with last weekend's two-wicket loss at the hands of Nantwich.

Hall, now down in fifth position in the table, will be looking for a positive outcome tomorrow as they head to Toft, who are battling against relegation.

Another team looking to stave off the threat of relegation is Northop Hall in the Liverpool Competition.

Hall played out a low-scoring draw in their last runout against bottom-of-the-table Fleetwood Hesketh.

Next up for Northop Hall, who are 11 points clear of the drop zone, is a tough home clash with leaders Lytham.
