Cricket: Top-flight rivals poised for battle
FIVE top-flight tussles catch the eye in tomorrow's Lincolnshire County Cricket League action, with teams at both ends of the table having plenty to play for despite the recent wet weather.
Andy Haith's Cleethorpes 2nds are in premier division action at Chichester Road where they host Cherry Willingham.
Caistor entertain Messingham at Brigg Road in an intriguing mid-table battle.
