Whiteleas and Harton CC face a double header this weekend as league leaders Crook CC visit the Welfare Ground tomorrow (1.30pm start), before a trip to relegation rivals Horden on Sunday.

Following no fixture last week due to the England game, Leas will be hoping to carry on their good form having won two, drew two and lost one in their last five outings.

Skipper Andrew Potts is able to name the same side that earned a high scoring draw in their last game at Mainsforth for both games, and he hopes the break hasn’t stopped the momentum.

Potts said: “Obviously, the football has taken over the last few weeks, but it’s important we try to carry on our form.

“Crook are a very strong side and one of the favourites for the league, so we have to be on our game.

“As for Horden, they’re in a similar position to us and will be fighting for every point available.

“Both games will be tough, but we have to believe in ourselves and hopefully we will do well.”

On the back of three consecutive wins, Sid Corner Senior’s Second XI make the long journey to Crook tomorrow and then entertain Horden on Sunday.

Bowlers Peter Sowden and David Johnson are all set to make a return to the fold.

The First XI are in f15 action at Jack Clark Park tonight when they take on Marsden, with a 6pm start.
