Title hopefuls aim for big points haul
CAISTOR enjoy a Saturday off from Premier Division action – meaning title rivals Barton Town, Alford and Scunthorpe Town need to take advantage with heavy hauls of points.
Barton Town have home advantage against Messingham, Scunthorpe Town host Cleethorpes 2nds, while Alford travel to Cherry Willingham.
Great interest will also centre on Alkborough's home game with Broughton..
Bottom side Broughton desperately need a victory at West Halton Lane against Steve Clay's team.
Second-from-bottom South Kelsey would also welcome a home win against Nettleham. However, the visitors are one of the teams in the leading group.
In division one, Market Rasen can press their case for promotion.
Rasen visit Scunthorpe to take on Appleby-Frodingham 2nds at Brumby Hall, Bracebridge Heath 2nds host Holton-le-Clay.
It is probably make or break for second-from-bottom Outcasts, who must win their home game with Louth 2nds or face the likelihood of relegation.
Division two leaders Scunthorpe Town 2nds visit Caistor 2nds, while second-placed Messingham 2nds host Alkborough 2nds.
Keelby, who are also in the promotion hunt, entertain lowly Washingborough.
With neither of the top teams in division three having games on Saturday, Haxey 2nds will close the gap if they can secure victory at Alford 2nds after their long drive.
A decent points return for Cleethorpes 4ths, who host Outcasts 2nds, will see them move off the foot of the table.
In division four, leaders Market Rasen 2nds host Hykeham, while Immingham Blossom Way – trying to escape the re-election zone – have an important away fixture at Holton-le-Clay 2nds.
Sunday sees a local derby in the premier division between Cherry Willingham and Nettleham, while Grimsby team Laportes have a division three home fixture with Alford 2nds.
Teams and spectators are reminded that earlier start times apply during September.
Premier matches now commence at 12.30pm, while games in all other sections get under way at 1pm.
