NORTHOP are targeting double glory in the North Wales Cricket League this season.

While the first team are vying for the top honour in the Premier Division, Northop seconds currently lead the way in Division One.

After suffering only one loss in their opening 10 matches, Northop lead Gwersyllt Park by a solitary point ahead of tomorrow's trip to Llay.

"My aim is to build a very competitive culture," said Northop first team skipper Bart Ryan-Beswick.

"We have got 30 players we're trying to pick 22 from each week.

"They're playing very good cricket."

A ninth win of the campaign will be Gwersyllt Park's target as they head to fifth-placed Dolgellau, who are just off the pace in the chase for promotion.

Jake James is back in the Park ranks and he marked his return with a brilliant 51 not out from just 26 deliveries in last weekend's six-wicket win over Bethesda.

Hawarden Park aren't out of the promotion picture as the season reaches its midway point and they have home advantage versus Abergele, while Buckley have a tough trip to third-placed Conwy.

Even longer treks will be faced by Marchwiel and Wrexham and Connah's Quay, to Bethesda and Menai Bridge seconds respectively.

Amazingly, Division Two front-runners Brymbo seconds have only dropped nine points so far this season.

Boasting a mammoth 39-point advantage at the top, Brymbo will seek win number 11 of the campaign at home to Mochdre seconds tomorrow.
