Ups and downs in the Saracens Herts League
There were more celebrations at Chorleywood on Saturday as the Herts League Division One champions achieved the draw they needed to complete an unbeaten season.
Unlike many of their matches this season, Wood didn’t have it all their own way on the final day of the season as they never got close to chasing down Hitchin’s 247 for seven and had to settle for a total of 117 for seven in reply.
But the result was still enough to ensure they finished a memorable season with 13 wins and two draws, while there was no result in the other three games.
There was disappointment for Radlett Seconds (106 for ten) though, as despite beating Flitwick (74 for ten) by 32 runs they were relegated to Division Two by just three points.
Kings Langley missed out on swapping places with the Cobden Hill side after missing out on promotion from Division Two by the same agonising points margin. But neighbours Abbots Langley and Chipperfield Clarendon will be playing in Division Three next season after falling through the trap door.
One team they will not be playing is Rickmansworth after they were relegated from Division Three, while Langleybury Seconds and Chipperfield Clarendon Seconds dropped out of Division Four.
But there were happier emotions for West Herts Seconds, who won Division Five, while Leverstock Green Seconds are also up after finishing second in Division Six.
The other local teams to be promoted or relegated further down the Herts League were:
Division Seven: Hemel Hempstead Town Thirds (promoted).
Division Eight: Chipperfield Clarendon Thirds (relegated).
Division Nine: Northwood Town Seconds (promoted).
Division 11: Met Police Bushey Thirds (relegated).
Division 12: Leverstock Green Fourths (relegated).
Division 13: Bushey Thirds (promoted).
Division 14: Northwood Town Thirds (promoted).
