A DOZEN points from their final game of the season at Usk tomorrow will be enough to guarantee Newbridge the South East Wales League title and a long-awaited promotion.

James Morgan’s men beat basement boys Tondu by four wickets last weekend to make sure that the destiny of the league crown remains in their hands with one match to go.

Second-placed Miskin Manor, the long-time leaders before losing to Newbridge a fortnight ago, also won their penultimate fixture of the campaign to stay in the mix.

However, they will need to defeat Pentyrch at home tomorrow and cross their fingers in the hope that Newbridge come unstuck away to Usk.

If they do happen to finish on the same number of points then the title will be decided by which team fared better in the fixtures between them this summer.

That would be Newbridge as that triumph on August 25 saw them do the double over their closest competitors.

“It’s a big weekend for the club and we’ve got a bus full of supporters coming to watch us,” said Newbridge skipper Morgan.

“We’ve got quite a few players back, me included, so we will be relatively strong.

“We had two wins under Ryan Watkins when I was on holiday, so I think I’ll have to pull rank to get back in the team!

“It’s all in our hands after we beat Miskin a few weeks ago and Usk are safe so they haven’t got a lot to play for.

“Miskin have kind of done what we have over the last couple of years, been out in front for a long time and then had a couple of big losses.

“We had a few boys missing last Saturday and it wasn’t straight forward against Tondu, we had to really dig in to win.”

Other than the fight for promotion to the South Wales Premier League, there isn’t much else to be decided tomorrow in South East Wales League Division One.

Chepstow can cement third with a win at home against Brecon, though Sudbrook, in fourth, could have something to say about that if they get the better of visiting Croesyceiliog.

And Abergavenny still have an outside chance of a top-five finish if they see off Pontypridd at home and the three sides above them falter.

Tondu bid farewell to the top flight with a home game against Cardiff Gymkhana.
