Cricket: Cheadle aim for a fourth successive win to stay top

LEEK must fancy their chances of adding to their unbeaten start to the season in the North Staffs away to Meakins in the North Staffs and South Cheshire League tomorrow (August 8).

Last year's Premier Division runners-up have lost all three starts and sit rock-bottom of the Premier Division table.

One of those defeats was at the hands of Cheadle who have in contrast won all all three of their games and a sit top of the table - three points above defending champions Porthill Park, who lost a thriller at previously winless Ashcombe Park last weekend.

Cheadle are away to newly-promoted Division One champions Burslem; Ashcombe travel to Porthill; and Moorlands rivals Bagnall Norton and Checkley clash at the former's Light Oaks ground.

Bagnall Norton have been strengthened by the return of former Staffordshire county seamer Greg Wilmott after an eye injury.

In Division One, Blythe are at home to third-placed Newcastle and & Hartshill, seeking the points that will aid their bid for a swift return to the top flight.

Second-placed Knypersley, just five points adrift of early pacesetters Eccleshall, welcome Audley to Tunstall Road, while newly-promoted Endon travel into the Potteries to face Hem Heath.

Division One sees a Moorlands derby involving relegated Caverswall and promoted Division Three champions Oakamoor at Weston Coyney Road. The teams stand third and fourth respectively in the table, each on 37 points.
