Darlington, in fifth position, are at home to Marske and Liam Coates will take over the captaincy, as Paul Freary broke his wrist while fielding last Saturday and will be out for four to six weeks. Connor Whitelock replaces Freary, in their only change.

The Seasiders make one change from last weekend, with Jonathan Pickard coming in for Craig Gratton.

Skipper Lee Hodgson said: “Heading into this game we are looking to get our first win on the board, to get our season going after a slow start and there are positives to take from last week’s game. It will be another tough game against Darlington, but one we're looking forward to as a group of players.”

Champions Barnard Castle in second place, and journey to Middlesbrough in third place and Boro will have the same team as last week, as they are still missing James Beaumont and Paul Johnston.

Skipper James Lowe said: “We feel like we are playing some decent stuff, so we are looking forward to the challenge of playing against a very good side.”

Richmondshire travel to the SCG, to play early pace-setters Stokesley and have selected the same team as last Saturday and they are looking for their first win of the season in the league.

Stokesley will be looking to continue their good start and are an unchanged team with skipper Andrew Weighell in excellent form, following a superb 92 in last week’s victory at Hartlepool.

Secretary Mark Smith said: “Richmondshire without doubt, will be our biggest test of the season so far.”

Seaton Carew on the fringe of the relegation trap-door, following a poor start to the season, travel to Great Ayton at Leven Park and make two changes following last week’s heavy defeat at home to Darlington, with opening bowling pair David Storey and Stuart Lobb, are both returning to the side.

Hartlepool travel to Norton and both teams sit in the bottom two, without a win this season.

Pools recall 16-year-old off-spinner Aaron Feroz, in place of youngster Josh Vaughan who unfortunately broke a finger in the warm up, prior to making his seasonal debut against Stokesley last Saturday and he did not take part in any of the match.

Cricket chairman Alan Jackson said: “Our club will not be underestimating Norton at the weekend. They scored over 200 runs against us in the recent Kerridge Cup match and even though we won, they gave us a tough game.”

Marton are at home to Guisborough and there will be a good feeling in their camp, after the brilliant win at Barnard Castle last Saturday.

Skipper Alex Wardell said: “We make one change from the win at Barney last week, with Liam Kennedy in for Luke Gettings. We will be looking to keep the momentum going from last weekend into this weekend.”

Guisborough have Nick Hood and Tom Gittins out unavailable, so Stephen Turner and Dan Bowman are drafted into the side.

Chris Nicholls from the club said: “It was a very positive result last Saturday against Norton, to get our first league win of the season. Shani was in great form and showed what a class act he really is, with both bat and the ball. It should be a great game against Marton after their win at Barney and a true test of our good start to the season.’’
