IT’S not just the Lancashire League title up for grabs on the final day of the season this weekend - with places in the top 12 also all important this year.

League leaders Walsden, who lost their unbeaten record in defeat to Darwen last time out, will be crowned champions in their debut campaign in the league with a win away at Rawtenstall.

Lowerhouse, six points adrift in second, are on the road at Church and must win to have any chance of taking advantage of a Walsden slip-up while Ramsbottom, in third, have slim title hopes ahead of their visit to Accrington.

Rammy would need to take 12 points from the match, hope that Lowerhouse lose and that Walsden fail to pick up a point, to draw level with the leaders.

If teams are tied at the top then a play-off for the title would take place with a coin toss deciding who gets home advantage.

Away from the title drama, four sides are scrapping for the three remaining places in the top half and with it a place in the top tier of the league when it splits next season.

Crompton begin the day in 10th and can secure their place with a win at home to Norden.

Rochdale are currently in the final qualifying position but will be certain of a top half position if they win at home to Nelson, who begin the day one place and seven points better off.

A win for the visitors would see them secure a top 12 spot.

Todmorden are the team currently in line to miss out ahead of a home clash with Bacup.

But a victory for Andrew Sutcliffe’s men, a point behind Rochdale, is likely to be enough to earn them a top tier place given the fact that Nelson and Rochdale play each other.

Tod could also lose and move up depending on the amount of bonus points picked up by their rivals.

At the bottom of the table, Rishton will avoid the wooden spoon with victory over Darwen, who are guaranteed to finish fourth.

Should the Towers prevail then Milnrow, five points adrift heading into the weekend, could climb off the bottom with a win at Middleton.
