Ormesby is looking to extend his lead at the top of the SBL Premier Division


Ormesby will hope to extend his lead at the top of the Senior British League, Premier Division this weekend as the season enters its final rounds.

The northeast side will be looking to cement their place at the top of the table on their journey to Urban TTC. Although they are missing some of their usual squad, they are confident they can break away from second-placed North Ayrshire who are not playing this weekend.

With Ryan Jenkins coaching away and Hassan Weerasinghe in the middle of his final college exams, the Middleborough squad consists of Sam Mabey, Tom Rayner and Jake Haygarth.

Teenager Rayner retains his place in the line after a man of the match performance against Fusion three weeks ago. He was a vital part of the team that put Ormesby top of the league.

Urban comes into the match buoyed by his first win of the season after defeating BATTS in a thriller that saw no less than five games go to a deciding fifth game. Alim Hirji is expected to lead the team again.

You can watch the game through Urban TTC Facebook page from 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Elsewhere, Fusion will host Ormeau in an effort to put pressure on the league’s top two teams.

Oriol Monzo, Matt Ware and Paul McCreery will travel to London for an Ormeau side looking to regain their early season form. They won their first two matches but haven’t added to that tally since October.

Monzo, Spanish doubles champion 2022, plays his first match for the club this year. The French National 1 and Spanish Premier League player is a solid addition to the squad and will certainly be tough to beat alongside Ware and Irish national champion McCreery.

Lorestas Trumpauskas and Robert Pelc should be included in the Fusion side.

The meeting will be broadcast in full from 2 p.m. Fusion Facebook Page.
