Joy unconfined as BP Firsts gain promotion to Division 1.
BP Firsts sealed promotion to Div.1 after Londsboro failed to win at Malton which left BP clear in second place after a 2 wicket win at Clifton Alliance. BP still have an outside chance of winning the league if Malton slip up next week.
Massive congratulations to Tom Malloch and his team who after a slow start back in April and May have really roared along and thoroughly deserve promotion. the team can now build towards maintaining Div.1 status next year. Well done lads!
It was bad news for BP seconds though who were consigned to Div.6 next year after another defeat. It has been a difficult year with a number of players from previous seasons now fixtures in the first eleven and sadly not many youngsters have come through from the juniors which has left the team filled with older players who this season have just not been able to contribute enough consistently. Next year will be a chance to build a younger able side who should be well capable of being very competitive in Div.6.
