TITLE glory will be very much in the sights of both Braintree and Witham cricket clubs on Saturday.

The duo currently lead the way in their respective divisions at the top of the Marshall Hatchick Two Counties Championship heading into the final weekend of the season and know that one more win for both of them will wrap up successful campaigns.

Witham are the front-runners in division one and will be looking to claim a first-ever top-flight crown when they entertain Lakenheath at the Park, while Braintree, who are already assured promotion back into the top tier, are gunning for the division two title.

Braintree secured their promotion with a win against Copford last weekend and know a win at Kelvedon & Feering on Saturday will see them go up as champions.

Captain Louis Cant is proud to have seen his team get themselves back into division one and said the title would make their achievement extra special.

He said: "I don’t think there’s much more I can say to the guys.

"They are just as hungry for the title as I am.

"We’ve got the promotion sorted now and the title would be a really deserved cherry on top.

"If we win, the title is ours, so it’s win at all costs on Saturday."

Meanwhile, Witham are also hungry to cap their season with title glory.

A big win against Ipswich last weekend kept them at the division one summit and they know one more victory will complete the job as second-placed Wivenhoe will be unable to overhaul them.

With the the prospect of making club history in place, Witham may be forgiven for having a few nerves, but after seeing his team win 14 games in a row, skipper Jake Wakelin said no-one was feeling daunted by the task ahead.

He said: "Everyone is really excited.

"I think people have been impressed with how we have been winning as we aren't just getting over the line, we've been winning by eight wickets or 150 runs.

"There's a good feeling in the camp and everyone is just excited to hopefully be winning the league for the first time.

"If we can get seven points then we'll have achieved something that will go down in club history, but we want to win this final game and get over the line properly.

"We are playing at home and we're hoping to see plenty of people down at the club enjoying what we hope will be another successful afternoon.

"This is for everyone because, going back seven or eight years when the club went down into division three, it has been a club effort to get us back to where we are.

"It's not just the 11 lads playing, it is the whole club and hopefully there will be a lot of people down there to celebrate."

Whatever happens on the final day of the Two Counties season, Witham will be in action on Sunday as well as they head to Cambridgeshire and Huntingdonshire Premier League division one champions Sawston and Babraham for a semi-final in the play-offs to move up into the East Anglian Premier League next year.
