The season comes to a close today, with the most important question still to be answered: who will be champions?

Richmondshire hold pole position, four points ahead of Great Ayton, and the Dalesmen are at home to Marske, who are unbeaten in their last seven games.

Great Ayton also have a difficult match, as they head off to Marton who are fourth.

The toss in both games will be crucial, as the decisions made to bat or bowl first, could have huge consequences.

Should Richmondshire lose the toss and Marske bat, they could only get a maximum 20 points from their game, while Great Ayton could win their toss and bat first, possibly claiming the maximum 25 points and win the league by a point.

Barnard Castle in third, with an eight-point gap over Marton, finish at home to Seaton Carew.

Barney will be unchanged, while Seaton skipper Paul Braithwaite will make two changes. He said: “We welcome back David Storey to replace Danny Thomas and Matthew Skirving to replace Jack Bond, as we look to finish our fourth season in the Premier League strongly.

Hartlepool who have come into form at the right time to avoid relegation, welcome Middlesbrough to Park Drive.

Pools have to make two changes, with Jonathan Rickard working and James Ward playing football for Stockton Town. They are replaced by 16-year-old Josh Vaughan and Chris Smith.

Stokesley travel to relegated Norton and will be without James Weighell. Guisborough welcome Darlington and the Priorymen will be playing their last Premier League game for a while following relegation last weekend.

In Division One, promoted Thornaby need six points to claim the title and welcome Whitby to Acklam Road. Bishop Auckland are favourites to join them in the Premier League, as they are second and 15 points ahead of Billingham Synthonia.

Bishops travel to relegated Redcar, while Synners coincidentally travel to the other relegated club, Middlesbrough.

Should both teams slip up, Darlington RA and Saltburn will have a chance to be promoted, and they meet up at Marske Mill Lane.
