HANGING Heaton will continue their quest for Bradford Premier League glory against New Farnley this weekend.

The side sit fourth in the Premier Division, just a point off top, and captain Gary Fellows outlined Heaton's hunger for silverware.

He said: "I think it's the same as what we've looked at for the last three years.

"The league cricket is your bread and butter if you like and I would always hope, with the squad that we've got and the players that we've got, that we'll get towards the last month at the end of the season and still be in the thick of it and in with the chance of going for the title.

"The league form is a long summer, so as long as we can go into the last four games and be within shouting distance of winning the league, then it puts us in with a chance."

Heaton face a Farnley side who have had significant investment and are in the search for their first league title.

Fellows is wary of what they might bring. The captain said: "They've assembled a strong side, a strong squad.

"The club's had a lot of backing, a lot of development - the ground and the playing staff.

"So, it'll be a very tough game, playing against lads that we've played against year-in year-out, with a few new additions as well.

"It'll be a very strong game, two really good teams who'll go hard at it.

"But hopefully, if we start the game off well, then we'll look to try and impose our skills and our qualities over them, then by the end of Saturday night we should be victorious."

The current standings reflect that fact the weather put paid to every Premier Division fixture last weekend, something which frustrated Fellows.

He added: "It was disappointing that we were in a position where we were four overs from winning the game. I felt we were always in control.

"But, I've played a lot of cricket, been around a long time, and sometimes just the weather goes against you.

"You're disappointed at the time, but on reflection you've just got to put it behind you - it's one of those things."

Joint league leaders Bradford & Bingley and Wrenthorpe will be looking forward to getting back into action, against Pudsey St. Lawrence and Cleckheaton respectively.

Pudsey sit joint bottom alongside Methley, by virtue of receiving no bonus points from their abandoned fixtures.

The latter have a chance for reprieve when they play Woodlands at home.

Two sides tied in the middle of the table - Lightcliffe and Townville - both have home fixtures.

In a battle of the "Cliffes", Lightcliffe host Undercliffe, while Townville play Farsley.

There's been slightly more action in the Championship One, where early front-runners Morley will look to add a second win to their tally against East Bierley at the weekend.

Second-placed Gomersal, who are only behind by two points, will hope to claw back the deficit with a game at home to Bankfoot.

The division's two bottom clubs - Wakefield St. Michael's and Hartshead Moor - have home advantage for their ties against Keighley and Baildon respectively.

Elsewhere, Ossett host third-placed Batley, while Pudsey Congs travel to Scholes.

There are seven fixtures in the Championship Two.

Birstall will look to get their season under way properly away at Carlton, after their opening fixture was postponed.

Likewise their opponents in that tie, Bowling Old Lane, will hope to play out their tie at home to Adwalton to completion.

Joint leaders - Spen Victoria and Hopton Mills - play Northowram Fields and Altofts respectively.

Top-of-the-table challengers Jer Lane and Buttershaw St. Pauls will be looking for as many points as possibly when they play Liversedge and Yeadon respectively.

The final fixture in the division sees East Ardsley host Hunslet Nelson.
