Both sides have eased to victories almost every week this season so promotion has always looked inevitable, and now the only thing to decide is who wins the league title.

Habton are sitting top of the pile after claiming easy wins against Wykeham 3rds and Ravenscar 2nds.

Ten-man Wykeham 3rds only managed to get to 91 all out thanks to 66 from loanee Harry Gunning, while Jordan Allanby took 4-10.
