The final round of matches are upon us with promotion and relegation places still to be finalised.

Owing to a shortage of umpires, some have been drafted in from the Lancashire League and the Northern league, one of which is 17 year Paddy Brown who will be umpiring Liverpool v Orrell Red Triangle at Aigburth with Peter Freeman as his colleague.

Northern meet New Brighton at Rake Lane where players and spectators will be asked to observed two minutes silence in memory of Northern's former President, Andy Davies, who passed away on Wednesday. Flags will be flown at half mast during the day. If black armbands are worn, please remember they go on the LEFT arm.

The death of Andy has taken the edge off the LCB Knockout Cup Final at Old Trafford on Sunday where there is a repeat of last year's final between Bamford Fieldhouse, the holders, and Northern.
