KINGSLEY will have home advantage when the Cheshire League’s T20 resumes next week.

The Crofters, who progressed from their group with an unblemished record after winning all three matches, will host lower-ranked Wirral on Thursday.

Their visitors play in the third division, two levels below a side led by Ben Stoddart.

Meanwhile Barnton, Middlewich and Winnington Park have secured a place in the T20 Plate as a reward for their performances at the group stage.

James Hodgkinson’s men, edged out for top spot by Kingsley after losing a head-to-head between the teams, host Old Parkonians when that competition starts.

The other mid Cheshire sides have a bye to the quarter-finals.
