Lincolnshire County Cricket League Premier Division not ruined by wet weather

Despite weeks of wet weather doing its best to ruin things, the Lincolnshire County Cricket League Premier Division is proving very interesting this season.

On Saturday all five top-flight tussles are well worth watching, with teams at both ends of the table having plenty to play for.

Andy Haith's Cleethorpes 2nds are in action at Chichester Road where they host Cherry Willingham.

Heslam Park will host an intriguing battle between third-placed Scunthorpe Town and second-in-the-table Barton Town.

Andrew White's leaders Alford, who also have their eyes set on lifting the coveted championship pennant, entertain Alkborough.

Bottom side Broughton, who have not found the going easy since regaining their top-flight status, are at home to fourth-placed Nettleham.

Division One's top match could be a Tetney Lane, where Holton-le-Clay will welcome title-chasing Scothern.

The teams relegated from the Premier Division last September, Bracebridge Heath 2nds and Horncastle, meet up at the latter's Coronation Walk ground.

In Division Two, Lincoln pride will be at stake at Mulsanne Park, where Nettleham 2nds take on Washingborough, while the city's Ashby Avenue ground is the venue for Hartsholme 2nds against Caistor 2nds.

In Division Three, second-placed Haxey 2nds visit Marsh Lane to take on Barton Town 2nds, while third-in-the-table Cherry Willingham 2nds entertain Outcasts 2nds.

Rain permitting, it will prove a busy weekend for a couple of the teams in Division Four, who face games on successive days.

Saturday sees Immingham Blossom Way hosting Market Rasen 2nds, while Holton-le-Clay 2nds journey to Keelby 2nds.

Then, on Sunday, Immingham Blossom Way are at home again, with Holton-le-Clay 2nds providing the opposition.

Elsewhere, Scothern 2nds entertain league leaders Old Lincolnians.

Premier Division games start at 1pm, while other Lincs League clashes begin at 1.30pm.
