HAGLEY CC could face an off-season of uncertainty after their promotion to Worcester League Division One was thrown into doubt.

Russ Andrews’ side have secured a top three finish in Division Two - which was thought to be good enough to secure their passage up.

But recent rumours that one or more Worcestershire based clubs may pull out of the Birmingham League could see this change if those teams are parachuted into Division One.

Hagley head into this Saturday’s final game at Belbroughton still in with a chance of a top two finish but Andrews admitted anything less is likely to leave them in limbo.

He said: “We could be biting our nails for a few weeks at least. It might not be till next year when we find out which Division we will be playing in.

“It’s not an ideal situation and we are a little confused at what is happening.

“I think we’d be a little bit disappointed if we don’t go up as it’s looked for so long like third would be enough.

“At the minute everything is rumour so there might not be a problem at all but I think if we finish third we will be in for a few weeks of worry.

“The best thing we can do is go out and beat Belbroughton on Saturday.

“Colwall are in second place and if they slip up it might be enough for us to make the top two. Then we will be promoted for sure.”

Hagley go into their clash at Belbroughton nine points behind Colwall after recording a resounding win over Worcester Dominies last weekend.

In a high-scoring clash, Amjad Ali smashed 115 as Hagley racked up 355-7 from their 50 overs.

Dominies in reply were always struggling with the run rate and Craig Bray took 4-58 as they were bowled out for 261.
