H&B will entertain HSBC tomorrow (Saturday) lying third in Kent One - just two points behind second-placed Beccehamian, with the eventual runners-up to contest a promotion play-off against the equivalent finishers in Sussex One.

Such an eventuality seemed highly unlikely back in mid-February, but a run of four wins from their last five league matches has catapulted H&B into contention with two games to go.

Both of H&B’s remaining fixtures, however, are against teams in the top five who they lost to in the first half of the campaign. After facing fifth-placed HSBC at Ark William Parker Academy from 3pm tomorrow, they will finish up away to fourth-placed Old Williamsonians next weekend.

Beccehamian’s final two encounters are both away from home. They will head to Williamsonians tomorrow before taking on Southwark Lancers on April 23.
