DIVISIONAL REPORTS The Second XI fixture schedule fared even worse than that of the First XI’s with all matches cancelled. However it leaves some intriguing championship and relegation issues to be finalised with the clashes on 15 September. In the Premier Division Sowerby Bridge (203 points) could still mathematically take the title but a miracle is required as it needs to claim 12 points whilst Triangle (215) would have to be pointless and Warley (207) obtain only 7 points or less. The battle therefore appears to be between the latter two as Triangle travel to Blackley and Warley entertain Sowerby St Peter’s Matters are settled in the First Division with the season completed. Shelf Nortowram Hedge Top collected the championship trophy on Saturday, at a very damp Outlane, and it will be joined in the top flight by Mount as both the re-formed club and the 2017 entrants make their Premier Division debuts. At the opposite end of the table Stones is joined by Southowram in the bottom tier, the latter club completing a unwanted relegation double. Whilst Crossley Shield winners Illingworth St Mary’s will be cursing the weather of Saturday the simple fact that it is not in the Second Divison promotion shake-up is that it has lost more outright matches (seven) that that of promoted Bradley & Colnebridge (three) and Bradshaw (five). With B&C having completed its fixtures, notwithstanding the difference in the latter two, Bradshaw can claim the claim the title at home to Leymoor next Saturday by gaining a minimum of eight points.
