CHESTER Boughton Hall entertain Macclesfield in Division One tomorrow as they try to maintain their position at the top of Division One.

They are now in the second half of the season and captain Steve Ogilby is delighted with how well Boughton Hall's campaign is going so far.

'We are fourteen points clear at the top of the league,' he said. 'We couldn't ask for a better start. Confidence is extremely high and we hope to continue winning matches'.

Opening batsman Warren Goodwin is Boughton Hall's only injury concern for tomorrow's encounter. The big hitter is suffering from glandular fever and has been out of action for three weeks.

He is expected to be out for around another month. Matthew Griffiths has deputised for the ill Goodwin and has performed admirably according to skipper Ogilby.

He said: 'Matthew has come in and done extremely well hitting two half centuries and a 30.'

Boughton Hall won by five wickets when the teams met in the reverse fixture in the opening game of the season.

They will also be buoyant following their seven-wicket victory over Bollington last weekend. Heath Pritchard's figures of 5-57 spearheaded the league leaders to an eighth maximum of the season.

Bollington recovered from 91-7 to post 185 with restored skipper Gary Wood scoring 54 but Pritchard, who has taken 45 wickets this season, tore into the order.

Fine batting on a perfect pitch at Filkins Lane led by Ed Roberts (54) and Matt Griffiths (51) saw Chester home early.
