Round 18 – Saturday, 19th August 2017

Week 18 Tables.  As we went into Round 18 it was Ouseburn, Birstwith, Helperby, Masham in the top 4 places in Division One.  Birstwith beat Helperby by 40 runs and Masham beat Ouseburn by just 2 runs.  Sitting in pole position then, with just 4 games to go is Birstwith.  Masham and Birstwith are going to be sick of the sight of each other as they play each other home and away an in the Senior KO Cup final before the end of the season.
Current top 4 sides’ run in:
Birstwith – Knaresborough Forest (h), Masham (a), Spofforth (a), Masham (h)
Ouseburn – Spofforth (h), West Tanfield (h), Alne (h), West Tanfield (a)
Masham – Alne (a), Birstwith (h), Burton Leonard (h), Birstwith (a)
Helperby – Burton Leonard (a), Darley (h), Goldsborough (h), Darley (h)

At the bottom, Alne helped themselves with a win over Knaresborough Forest but Spofforth lost to West Tanfield.  Forest and Hampsthwaite are not out of trouble yet and a good run by any side could also bring West Tanfield into contention for the drop.

In Division Two, Wath and Melmerby are looking strong for another promotion as they currently sit top after easily beating Bishop Thornton and Studley Royal’s victory over Scotton puts them back up into second place.  Dacre Banks did themselves no favours in their push for promotion by losing to Raskelf, nor Blubberhouses who lost to Pateley Bridge.  Newby Hall are relegated and may be joined in Division Three next season by Ripley, Burnt Yates, Markington or perhaps Scotton.

Thornton-le-Moor need to win all of their remaining fixtures to have a chance of staying in Division Three but at the top, its very close between Harrogate Strays and Killinghall.

Fag packet maths reveals that Thornton Watlass are just 1 point away from promotion out of Division Four with North Stainley currently sitting in second place.

The same maths says that Spennithorne and Harmby are 2 points away from promotion from Division Five with Newby Hall 2nds long relegated.

New boys Upper Wharfedale who remain unbeaten all season are close to securing promotion from Division Six.

Division Seven is very close to call at the top but with no relegation this year those near the foot of the table can breath a sigh of relief and enjoy the last few games.

Division Eight is frankly a mess and currently 3 teams will go up.
