Leaders aim to extend gap - if weather allows
A MONTH ago there appeared no stopping Dafen's march to a successive Thomas Carroll South Wales Cricket Association title.
That was until the good old British weather intervened.
The downpours of recent weeks have seen the Llanelli village club suffer more than most and going into the latest round of fixtures tomorrow, their lead at the top has been whittled back to just 11 points.
If the elements don't play their part, Matthew Evans's side should make it win number seven at home to bottom side Pontardawe, but they will also be keeping a close eye over their shoulder at the fortunes of nearest rivals Ynystawe and Swansea.
