Title’s still there to be won, says Tod skipper

THE Lancashire League title is still there for the taking.

That was the message from Todmorden skipper Andrew Sutcliffe after both his sidc’s weekend fixtures were washed out.

It meant that Lowerhouse, who managed to play and win, opened a clear lead at the top.

Todmorden lie in joint third place with Ramsbottom, who they had been due to play at Centre Vale on Saturday, 12 points behind.

They each took three points from the washed out game.

But as no Lancashire League games took place at all on Sunday, they will have to replay that fixture at Rawtenstall on Sept 3.

“I am sure that the top spot will change hands a few times until the end of the season.

“As long as we play our best cricket and work hard then there is no reason why we can’t be still in the race come the final few games of the season,” said Sutcliffe.

He and his side had been looking forward to playing Ramsbottom after suffering two defeats in a weekend at their hands two weeks ago, one in the league and the other in the Worsley Cup semi-final.

“We were looking forward to getting the chance to play Rammy again as we felt we needed to put in a huge performance to get rid of the other weekend.

“But that game has now gone and we need to have a strong couple of weeks to stay in the hunt,” he said.
