Northern Premier League Preview for the 15th and 16th August

Morecambe v Fleetwood and Blackpool v Leyland big games in Round 21


The Northern Premier Cricket League sponsored by Chorley Building Society enters into Round 21 of the Competition and with only six more rounds left, we are no where nearer to deciding the destination of the Division One title.

A lot of attention will be focused on Woodhill Lane as Leaders Morecambe host fourth placed Fleetwood. Undoubtedly this game will go along way in deciding where the title may end up.

Morecambe have taken the League by storm, the inclusion of Suraj Randiv and Eddie Read has certainly been of huge benefit to Josh Dixon's team.

Fleetwood have also been in top form, David King continuously proving to be a good professional as he tops the run scoring charts after passing Sean Young's record last weekend. Fleetwood will however have to do without Ian Holland who has left the Club.

Victory for Morecambe would see them extend their lead at the top, and a win for Fleetwood will see them close in.

The other title contenders will be keen to keep winning as defending League Champions Blackpool host Leyland. Darwen are also on the road as they travel to face rock bottom Preston.

In the other games, St Annes entertain Barrow, Netherfield host Lancaster, while Penrith entertain Kendal.
