UPBEAT Foulridge aim to make it three wins from three games at the top of the Mewies Solicitors Craven League this afternoon as they cross the Pennines for another big clash.

John Lambert’s men have impressed so far in Division One and head to Bingley Congregationals high on confidence after good shows with both bat and ball so far this term.

Barrowford claimed their first win of the season last weekend and look to double up when Cowling travel to Bull Holme this afternoon.

And the Villagers go into the game as favourites with Cowling having lost both games to date.

Thornton-in-Craven are on the road and head to another side yet to win.

But they know that Haworth, who were among the favourites for the crown, will provide a tough test despite losing both games Chatburn have enjoyed a fine start to life in Division Two and are joint top after winning both their games so far.

And they are hopeful of completing a hat-trick when mid-table Denholme travel to the Ribble Valley.

Barrowford seconds have not had the best of starts and after losing their first two matches they are in need of a boost.

They will have to be at the top of their game, however, as they go to Glusburn to face a side boasting a 100 per cent record.

Pendle Forest have made a good start to life following relegation into Division Three and after two wins from two games they sit joint top.

The only other side in the division to have earned maximum points is Skipton Church Institute – and something has to give when the teams meet in North Yorkshire.

It’s a rare double header for clubs as they embark on the road to glory in the Wynn Cup tomorrow.

Thornton travel to Airedale, while Chatburn face Division One high-flyers in the first round.

Barrowford are also in action and travel to last season’s cup runners up Oakworth.

Pendle Forest welcome Embsay to Old Laund Booth, while Foulridge have a bye.
