OUTGOING champions Rishton are on the hunt for a new professional for next season.
The club had offered Saeed Anwar Junior a contract for a third spell at the club - but he has yet to accept.
"We have offered him terms but three deadlines have come and gone so we are looking elsewhere," said chairman Alan Craven.
But Enfield will be hoping they can make a title challenge next season with their paid man Gary Brent already signed up.
The third placed side have had a storming finish to the season and will be hoping, despite playing only once this weekend, they can hold on to a top four placing.
They enjoyed an easy win over East Lancs on Saturday. Mas Ahmed (62) and Craig Fergusson (39) got them off to a good start before Mark Burns’ 39 not out gave them a formidable target of 235.
East Lancs were never in the chase with Keith Barker taking five wickets and Gary Brent four as they fell 181 runs short.
Captain David Bracewell will be disappointed their game against Burnley fell victim to the weather on Sunday as they looked to put some space between them and the chasing teams.
ACCRINGTON could have won the title on Sunday - if the weather hadn’t thwarted them too.
They had a tight clash with Rishton, will they look likely to take the title off, on Saturday. Skipper Andy Bartley made 53 for the defending champions while Saeed Anwar got 29 of their 147.
It wasn’t an easy chase for Accrington despite 49 from Graham Lloyd and they only passed the target with two wickets to spare.
Their game at Haslingden then was off due to the weather and it was frustrating as they could have clinched the title with a win.
And that’s because Church did Accrington a favour by seeing off Rawtenstall on Sunday.
Phil Gilrane’s side had slipped to a loss to Ramsbottom the day before but bounced back against the second placed side.
Andy Bentley took six wickets and then Church were chasing a revised 112 with Gilrane’s late 26 proving the difference.
Rishton celebrated only their fifth win of the campaign on Sunday against Todmorden.
Bartley was again in the runs with 52 while Craig Smith got 63 in their 174. The revised target for Tod was 161 and four wickets from recent addition Brian Hamilton gave them a morale-boosting win.
