NYSD Premiership 2015
Richmondshire lie top of the Premier League table, 18 points clear of Great Ayton. 8 points mathematically guarantee victory, or less may do if Great Ayton don't take the maximum 25 points for a win. Today's game starts at 12.30, and is against Stokesley, who are a strong side so it should be a good game to watch.
We received the following good luck message from Mark Hillary of SG Petch
Good look tomorrow guys, I'm thinking about the game but I'm on holiday in Lake Garda. Fingers crossed from Italy.
Frankly I can't understand why he'd want to be sweating in that heat rather than watching our lads win the trophy.
The NYSD trophy helicopter will be hovering half way between Great Ayton and Richmond as I type.
Richmondshire (367pts) top by 23 points with three games to go
With Great Ayton (344pts) and Barnard Castle (339pts) snapping at their heels, we head into the last three games of the NYSD Premiership 2015 season.
Whichever team you support ("Come on the Dalesmen!") get down to watch as we reach the climax of one of the closest fought premiership in recent years.
