DIVISION ONE League leaders Lanchester have an unchanged team as they welcome fourth placed Alnmouth & Lesbury.

Alnmouth & Lesbury skipper Tom Vickers said: "Paul Straker is missing at a wedding this weekend, so in comes Nick Robertson. We are looking forward to the challenge of playing against the top of the league side and favourites to win it.
