WALSDEN could wrap up the Lancashire League title this weekend, if they win at home to Lancashire Knockout finalists Darwen.

The leaders have not tasted defeat so far this season in their debut league campaign and require a maximum of nine points from their two remaining fixtures to win the division.

Lowerhouse are the nearest challengers, 16 points off the pace and should they lose at home to Rishton then their hopes of completing a league and Worsley Cup double will be over.

Ramsbottom, in third and a further six points behind, remain in with a mathematical chance of claiming the silverware but need to take maximum 12 point hauls from their remaining two matches. They host Middleton tomorrow.

At the other end of the table, bottom of the table Milnrow entertain Nelson hoping to make up a five point deficit on Rishton in the closing two weekends of the campaign.

Eight sides have secured their spot in the top division for next season while Burnley will secure the spot in the top tier with two points from their home game with Rochdale, who currently occupy the final top half place.

Crompton and Nelson are also in pole position heading into the final two matches with the former on the road at Colne.

Todmorden and Enfield are both still battling to be on the right side of the split and will be keen on victories away at East Lancashire and at home to Church respectively.

Elsewhere, Bacup host Rawtenstall and Great Harwood entertain Littleborough in matches involving sides who will play in the second tier next year while Accrington visit Clitheroe with both sides already having secured top half finishes this season.

The day’s other game sees Norden, in sixth, host 15th placed Haslingden.
