ANDREW SWARBRICK believes the winners of Chirk's top of the table clash with Wellington Seconds will be crowned Shropshire League Division Two champions.

There are still 10 games remaining after tomorrow's crunch encounter between the league's leading duo, but Swarbrick feels that the victors will be lifting the trophy in late September.

"Whoever wins this match will win the league," declared captain Swarbrick, who saw his side beat Shifnal Thirds by seven wickets inside 46 overs.

"Us and Wellington are the two best teams in the league, so whoever comes out on top takes the league in my opinion.

"It's a massive game."

Wellington are currently 17 points clear of Chirk heading into the meeting at Holyhead Road, the visitors holding that advantage due to a victory over Swarbrick's men earlier in the season.

Chirk were bowled out for 148, before Wellington edged their way to a two-wicket win as Swarbrick and fellow key all-rounder Nick Flack bowled just 19 balls between them due to injury.

Swarbrick is determined to put that defeat - Chirk's only loss of the season - firmly in the past by exacting revenge on Wellington.

"They beat us earlier this season and they are the only team about us, so there are two reasons to win tomorrow," said Swarbrick.

"We've got two reasons why we want to make the biggest statement this season, we want to tell everyone that Chirk are here.

"These are the types of games you want to play in. They are high pressure games and they are the sort to thrive on."

And Swarbrick believes that Wellington will be coming up against a different Chirk to the one they beat on the second week of the season.

"We just didn't bat well, which is not something we've said too often this season," said Swarbrick of May's loss.

"But we are a much more confident side now and that has shown in all aspects of our cricket.

"We lost Nick to a dislocated finger and I pulled my side, so we didn't have our full strength bowling attack either.

"We are ready to show the best Chirk this time around."

Billy Swarbrick, Chris Martin and Frank Macdonald-Brown return for Chirk, who are without Mark Shaw.
