The beautiful village of Tattenhall in Cheshire
Robin Mulvihill: September 2015
One last push is required in the final fixtures!
Tattenhall's Saturday sides need three points between them to seal a duo of relative successes this coming weekend.
The season's last two fixtures see the first team entertain Christleton and the seconds travel to faraway Congleton with similar means in mind, but for different ends.
Christleton looked dead and buried a few weeks ago, but have embarked on a hot streak of form to keep a fragile foothold in the division. The visitors still need a huge 25 point win with Tattenhall registering only two points — also in the mix are Cheadle Hulme, who require 5 points to guarantee their safety when they take on Oxton at home.
It has been a long, tough campaign for the first team in a tight division, registering 7 wins and only 7 losses, five draws batting second and two abandonments, one of which was against rock-bottom Middlewich. To stay up in their first year in Division 1 will be no small feat.
The seconds hope to pick up one point away at relegated Congleton to secure the title after a disappointing loss to Grappenhall last time out.
Sandy's lads have won 15 of their 21 games, losing 2, drawing 3 and 1 abandoned. The seconds stayed up in the top half of the table after promotion in 2013 and have made great strides since, despite losing some senior players.
Both teams look to be near to full strength with only Alan Brock and Josh Spraggs unavailable.
A tremendous effort from the thirds ended with them just short of winning the league as Neston picked up a win from their last game to pip them to the title. It was a great year for a side (at times featuring 10 juniors) led by the Chairman, who played some superb cricket and, most importantly, learned a lot throughout the year.
Three points are required to make 2015 a big success for the club — let's hope there are no hiccups at the last hurdle.
We would love to see you at the Flacca on Saturday to support our boys in their final endeavours!!
