Tichborne Park could have the Southern Electric Premier League, Division 3 title nicely tied up if they win tomorrow’s top of the table clash against Bashley (Rydal) II.

Already 18 points ahead with four games to go, Tichborne will be in a powerful position if they win. But if Bashley were to snatch victory in the Alresford countryside, the title race could go to the wire.

Tichborne expect to be at full strength, but Bashley are minus Josh Digby, Simon Ridley and Neil Taylor.

Neil Thurgood and Simon Watkins are, however, left out of the Bash first team.

Bashley (Rydal) II: Underwood, Thurgood, Vaughan, P.Morris, Watkins, R.Taylor, S.Morris, Lilley, Rapson, Gates, Bettle.

South Wilts II, joint third with Basingstoke & North Hants, have a potential home banker against Trojans, while Fair Oak are boosted by the return of the influential Rhys Oxley and the Featherstone brothers against Portsmouth & Southsea at :Lapstone Park.

Hampshire League leaders Shrewton host Ryde, while title rivals Ventnor II suspend bowler Charlie Calloway on the eve of Bournemouth’s visit to Steephill.
