All three Ovington sides in action this weekend, and with summer holidays the norm at this time of the year, there’s some interesting team selections.
Many thanks to The Slip Inn for sponsoring the Third Team game against Pocklington this afternoon
The First Team still have the Vale League First Division title within reach, although it is out of their hands as they need either a Bishopthorpe defeat or a no result. With the weather as it is this weekend, the latter looks unlikely. Ovington do have a free weekend next week (the 20th) and the long-term forecasts suggest there is a chance of some rain that weekend. Ovington have had little luck with the rain having had two no-results to Bishopthorpe’s zero. Even so, they still need to get past Wheldrake today at home on the Little Knavesmire. Ovington beat Wheldrake by eight wickets in the earlier fixture in the season.
The Second Team face the long trip to South Cave & Brantingham, with the Third Team, playing at home to Pocklington. The thirds will be hoping to put in a better batting performance than when 26-9 at one stage versus Pocklington a few weeks ago.
The Third Team game has been sponsored by The Slip Inn on Clementhorpe, many thanks for their support of the club.
Best of luck to all the Ovington sides in action.
