IT’S a massive day for Northop and Gwersyllt Park in the top two divisions of the North Wales Cricket League tomorrow.

Northop, who are 10 points clear at the top of the Premier Division with three games to go, travel to reigning champions Menai Bridge, who will be in the hunt to retain their title with victory on Anglesey tomorrow.

Bart Ryan-Beswick, the Northop skipper, said: “Menai Bridge are reigning champions and they’re still in with a squeak (of the title),” he added.

“It’s not going to be easy at all and they’ve got some fantastic players.

“It’s getting closer to the end, but we’re still a long way off.

“We have got three cup finals to go.”

Northop are close to full strength.

Although the title now seems out of reach, Brymbo still have their sights set on a top-three finish and they host a Mold side that could do with a win in their battle to beat the drop.

Pontblyddyn host Halkyn in a key relegation encounter, while Gresford have home advantage versus Bangor.

Second-placed St Asaph head to Llandudno and Mochdre play host to Denbigh.

Back in Gwersyllt and captain Iroshan De Silva is hoping for a decent crowd to witness what could be their promotion to the top flight - with just six more points the target.

Forty points ahead of Hawarden Park, Gwersyllt host third-placed Conwy and De Silva is excited at the prospect of sealing the title.

“We’ve had a very good season and it would be great to win it in front of our fans and members at Gwersyllt,” said De Silva, who has hit 766 runs this summer putting him in the top three batsmen in the league.

Hawarden Park have also enjoyed a terrific season and visit bottom-of-the-table Marchwiel and Wrexham while fourth-placed Northop Seconds host Dolgellau.

Buckley, Connah’s Quay and Llay Welfare are all at home with games against Abergele, Bethesda and Menai Bridge respectively.
