After passing one test last week with flying colours, new Premier Division leaders Whitley Hall face another in the South Yorkshire League’s top flight today.
They go to second-placed Whiston Parish Church, one of the sides expected to mount a title challenge this season and who will enjoy a tilt at the top side for the second week running.
Last week they knocked Wickersley off top spot with a 29 run win. This enabled Whitley to go top after their demolition job on Elsecar after amassing 320-4.
Whiston will have bowler Steve Taylor available after a two week ban - Taylor currently tops the bowling averages although his haul is only eight wickets at 8.50.
Wickersley - who will have Lesroy Weekes returning after a two-match ban - go to Treeton for whom Gareth Davis is also available after serving a two week ban.
