 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  18:42
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 259 all out (47.3 overs)
An impressive effort from Sikander Zulfiqar, but ran out of time and partners in the end. He ends up last man out for 96(?), ACC fall 43 short and HCC keep their title hopes alive for another week.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  18:24
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 224-9 (43 overs)
A run out and then a wicket for Overdijk, ACC’s task has gone from improbable to all but impossible. Looks like Excelsior will be waiting another week at least…

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  18:15
Sparta : 205-6 (44 overs)
VOC : 149-9 (31.2 overs)
Collapse continues at Bermweg, and however much better he may be feeling, van Baren will not be batting today. Crucial two points for Sparta who have put distance between themselves and the relegation zone today.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  18:04
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 202-7 (40 overs)
It’s dry at het Loopveld, and they’re back on. Accompanied by Arjan Kumar, Sikander Zulfiqar walks out to resume his innings on 55*, with home fans at het Loopveld and presumably all of Thurlede willing him on. No overs lost yet so the equation is still 100 off the last ten with three wickets in hand.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  17:57
Sparta : 205-6 (44 overs)
VOC : 121-6 (25 overs)
Two more wickets down at Bermweg, Sparta properly into the tail now.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  17:54
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 212-7 (40.3 overs)
VRA close out the win in the end, though they made a bit of a meal of it. Vikram Singh batted through the chase for an unbeaten 80* off 121 balls to see them home, with Cooper’s 20-ball 43 from number 3 ensuring he didn’t have to make them any faster. With Sparta going well against VOC at Bermweg, Quick look solid relegation favourites from here.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  17:47
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 107 all out (40.3 overs)
And Khan is stumped as well, off Ingram, to finish it off. De Mey is left not out on 12. Excelsior are on the brink of the title, but may have to wait until next week if ACC fail in their chase against HCC.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  17:44
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 202-7 (40 overs)
Rain now at het Loopveld, with ACC needing exactly 100 off the last ten and 49 behind on DLS. Shower looks to be passing but does give an idea of the size of the task ahead of Sikander Zulfiqar, currently unbeaten on 55*.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  17:41
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 204-7 (39 overs)
VRA contriving to make this interesting after all. After giving up on ever being caught by the hapless Quick fielders, VRA’s batsmen have taken to running themselves out. Lake and Lees in succession fall to admittedly sharp bits of fielding, and with Gunning nursing a suspected broken hand, Graber comes in at nine. Singh still there on 77*

 Dosti-United vs VCC  17:35
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 137 all out (?? overs)
VCC have capitulated in the meantime, Greenshields’ unbeaten 39* providing a some defiance at the end. They’re likely safe regardless given events at Nieuw Hanenburg, but this isn’t how they’d have hoped to get there.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  17:33
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 104-9 (39.1 overs)
The somnolence of the past ten overs is forgotten, as Westdijk takes seven off an Ingram over, hitting some lusty blows. But then Baker gets him, smartly stumped by Verhagen.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  17:30
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 195-6 (38 overs)
Half century for Sikander Zulfiqar, and he’s just about kept ACC in the hunt here. Still more than 100 required off the last 12 overs, but then HCC managed than comfortably…

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  17:27
Sparta : 205-6 (44 overs)
VOC : 104-4 (20 overs)
Big wicket at Bermweg meanwhile, Pieter Seelaar gone for 58, all three Dutch internationals back in the shed and VOC barely half-way to the target.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  17:27
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 183-5 (36 overs)
Turnmaine caught behind off van Schelven for a useful 36, Lake joins Singh, who’s on 75*.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  17:20
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 177-6 (35.5 overs)
Barends and Zulfiqar’s accelerating partnership might just have been beginning to worry HCC, but Street has Barends well caught by Overdijk, goes for 43 and HCC back in control.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  17:19
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 92-7 (34 overs)
Hanging in there, De Mey and Vink get HBS through to the final drinks break, but they’re way off the pace. The DLS par score at this point is 134, which is a fair reflection of the state of the game. Or to put it another way, they need 78 off 16 with three wickets in hand.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  17:17
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 179-4 (34 overs)
VRA still on course for a comfortable win, Singh on to 73* now, Turmaine still with hime on 34*.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  17:12
Sparta : 205-6 (44 overs)
VOC : 82-3 (16 overs)
VOC lose their third, Edwrads gone for 21.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  16:58
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 131-5 (30 overs)
ACC have rallied somwhat with Barends and Sikander Zulfiqar at the crease, but are still well off the pace. Still 170 adrift with just 20 overs remaining, would take something special from here.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  16:53
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 75-7 (26.4 overs)
Another one goes: Coster drives at Van Troost, but head-high to Heggelman at shortish extra cover. He made 12. STEPHAN Vink joins De Mey.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  16:53
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 81-7 (13 overs)
Noah Croes’ resistance ends as he plays on for 53, VCC slouching toward a heavy defeat. Will need VRA or VOC to win today if they are to secure safety this week.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  16:48
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 71-6 (25.3 overs)
Discretion being the greater part of valour, Parchment calls for a helmet for Ingram’s next. His looming presence may or may not have influenced a false shot by Naviit, who lunges forward only to edge the ball into his stumps. Julian de Mey in at eight.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  16:47
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 151-4 (27 overs)
Van den Burg comes and goes, caught off Brand for four, but Singh finds an able collaborator in Turmaine, who injects some impetus into the innings with a run-a-ball 23*, Singh at the other end brings up his fifty, VRA cruising.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  16:41
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 66-5 (24 overs)
Heggelman turns the screw, with Ingram on and Parchment in at silly point, spurning a helmet in favour of an orange sun hat. Not that there’s any sun to speak of. Ingram bowls a maiden.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  16:43
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 71-7 (19 overs)
Another down at Voorburg, Gigani bowled, this match only going one way now.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  16:31
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 62-5 (20.5 overs)
Barresi has found scoring difficult against a persistent Excelsior ttack, and when he swings at Van Troost Bhatti at mid-on dives forward to take the catch just off the ground. Barresi’s 9 came off 35 balls, and he is succeeded by Navjit Singh with HBS in serious trouble.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  16:25
Sparta : 205-6 (44 overs)
VOC : 20-2 (2.5 overs)
VOC stumble out of the blocks meanwhile as O’Dowd and van Lent fall in the space of three balls.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  16:22
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 101-3 (19 overs)
Hundred up for VRA but Mol claims Borren’s wicket, and still a good way to go. Singh still there on 36* but the runs have dried up since Cooper’s departure. Van den Burg at five.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  16:17
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 47-4 (13 overs)
Voorburg meanwhile lose their fourth wicket as de Grooth goes LBW.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  16:16
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
ACC : 80-3 (15 overs)
ACC scoring at a decent clip but three down already.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  16:06
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 51-3 (16 overs)
They take a drink at Thurlede, with the game at a crucial point: Gomes and Barresi are on 32 and 6, with Umar Baker replacing Van Troost from the City End and Bhatti operating from the other. HBS are making slow progress, but everyone’s aware that a wicket would put Excelsior in the driving seat.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  15:58
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 89-2 (15 overs)
Another fine catch does for Cooper, who fall to Brand for 43 off just 20 balls. Borren in at 4.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  15:53
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 37-3 (12 overs)
Rens van Troost has replaced Heggelman, and maintains the pressure well. Gomes is, as always, running well between the wickets, and Barresi looks in good nick. This is a vital partnership for HBS.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  15:53
Sparta 205-6 (44 overs)
DLS target will be 213 from 44 we’re told. And can also happily relate that Dirk van Baren is fine and on his way back to the ground.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  15:46
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 24-2 (5 overs)
Voorburg lose another, Floyd gone, 284 looking a long way off.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  15:44
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 67-1 (10 overs)
Cooper’s not wasting any time, he’s been out there less than 2 overs and already has 28 runs, 2 sixes and 4 fours..

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  15:36
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 24-3 (8.3 overs)
And it’s looking further off still now, as Ahmed swings cross the line, gets a leading edge, and Parchment snaffles the return catch. Wesley Barresi joins Gomes, who’s working hard to create some momentum.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  15:35
Sparta 205-6 (44 overs)
Sparta rack up 205-6 from their 44 overs, expect DLS will add a few on top of that too…

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  15:30
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 14-2 (7 overs)
There’s a real battle going on out there, with Parchment and Heggelman beating the bat fairly regularly, and some moments of misunderstanding between the batsmen as the pressure builds. 170’s looking a .lot further off than it did during the innings break.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  15:28
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 35-1 (8 overs)
Swarczynski falls prey to a spectacular catch from Bista diving forward at mid-off, Diwan the bowler, Cooper in at 3.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  15:24
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
VCC : 0-1 (0.2 overs)
Voorburg’s chase gets off to a poor start.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  15:15
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
VRA : 28-0 (5 overs)
Solid start for VRA’s chase meanwhile, Singh and Szwarczynski opening, Diwan and Dake share the new ball.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  15:03
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 4-2 (1.2 overs)
Sharn Gomes in at three, Two for Elkin off Heggelman’s first delivery, but the second crashes into the stumps. Adil Ahmed in at four, with Houdini’s ghost hovering over Thurlede. As are, I’m sorry to report, the rain clouds.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  14:59
Excelsior: 169 all out (45.5 overs)
HBS: 2-1 (0.3 overs)
HBS open with Zak/cs at both ends, Zak Gibson taking strike against Parchment, bowling from the Chalet End, and Zac Elkin the non-striker. Two into the covers first up, but the third is edged to Ingram at second slip, and he hangs on at the second attempt.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  14:55
Sparta 137-5 (34.3 overs)
Couple of quick wickets at Bermweg meanwhile.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  14:44
Dosti : 283-8 (50 overs)
Some energetic late hitting couple with some dubious fielding sees Dosti surge to a total of 283 after a bit od a wobble mid-innings. Will take some chasing.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  14:26
HCC : 301-7 (50 overs)
Wickets keep coming at het Loopveld as HCC look to hit out at the death, but Street bats through, finishing unbeaten on 113*, taking HCC past the 300-mark in the final over. More than 100 runs in the final ten overs there with Street and Overdijk earlier doing most of the damage.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  14:24
Dosti : 232-8 (45 overs)
Some resistance to be found in the Dosti tail, it seems, though the middle order have rather squandered the platform that Rahil Ahmed provided them.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  14:16
Excelsior 169 all out (45.5 overs)
After some last-wicket running the innings ends with a left-handed return catch by Barresi off Bhatti, running way to his left. Barresi finishes with three for 24, Shankar with 27 not out. That’s quite a collapse by Excelsior, from 155 for five to 169 all out. They’ll have to do another of their famed Houdini acts in the field.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  14:10
Sparta 82-2 (19.3 overs)
Van Baren is in no immediate danger, we are assured, but will be taking a precautionary trip to hospital after complaining of chest pains. Match reduced to 44 overs a side.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  14:05
Quick : 211 all out (48.1 overs)
A more than handy last-wicket partnership between Dake and Diwan gets Quick up over 200, but Borren claims the last wicket to see the hhosts bowled out with 11 balls to spare. 212 will be the target.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  14:02
Excelsior 162-9 (42.4 overs)
Van Troost plays down the wrong line to Vink and the bails fly. Sohail Bhatti the last man.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  14:02
HCC : 238-5 (44 overs)
Hundred partnership up for Overdijk and Street, but Overdijk’s swashbuckling innings comes to an end as he holes out for 65. Street still there on 66*

 Dosti-United vs VCC  13:59
Dosti : 202-7 (41 overs)
Something of a collapse at Westvliet, we hear. Five wickets for fifty runs. 200 on the board though.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  13:51
Excelsior 156-8 (38.5 overs)
Wheels flying off in all directions, as Baker plays on to Vink. Rens van Troost comes to the crease.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  13:49
Quick : 184-9 (43 overs)
Another for Turmaine as Vierling is pinned LBW, Diwan the last man.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  13:45
Excelsior 155-7 (37.3 overs)
Parchment goes in bizarre cricumstances: it looked as if Elkin took a juggled catch behind the stumps off Barresi, which was duly celebrated by all and sundry, but it turns out that the umpire gave him LBW. He made 49. Two balls later, David Woutersen is bowled. Excelsior suddenly in a spot of bother, as Umar Baker joins Shankar.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  13:45
HCC : 196-4 (40 overs)
Fifty parnership for Overdijk and Street meanwhile, and the latter has his personal half-century too. Overdjik on 36*, HCC closing in on 200 with ten overs to come.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  13:43
Quick : 182-8 (41 overs)
Turmaine and Cooper combine again, this time Turmaine the bowler and Cooper holding the catch, van Schelven gone for one. Dake in.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  13:35
Sparta 82-2 (19 overs)
Meanwhile a break in play at Bermweg, Dirk van Baren is feeling unwell, ambulance on its way.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  13:34
Excelsior 151-5 (35 overs)
Barresi introduces a ninth bowler into the attack, Stephan Vink producing a tidy over of medium pace to take us to the second drinks break. Parchment has advanced to 48, with Shankar on 15. Barresi himself still operating from the Chalet End.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  13:34
Quick : 173-7 (36 overs)
Turmaine follows up by holding a catch off Cooper to remove Stokkers in the following over. Wicket-maiden for Cooper, van Schelven and Vierling in the middle now, both yet to score.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  13:25
HCC : 157-4 (35 overs)
Overdijk and Street consolidating for HCC after that flurry of wickets.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  13:24
Quick : 173-6 (35 overs)
Turmaine removes Brand just as he was starting to look dangerous, caught for 37. Vierling joins Stokkers.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  13:14
Excelsior 131-5 (29 overs)
Gomes, having shown signs of belonging to the Wesley Barresi school of devastating occasional spin bowlers, is joined in the attack by the original himself, whereupon Parchment takes the long handle to the imitator, smacking him over long on and then extra cover for back-to-back boundaries..

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  13:12
Sparta 79-2 (18 overs)
Meanwhile Sparta have made it to drinks without further loss.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  13:09
Dosti : 155-2 (30 overs)
Dosti meanwhile have set quite a platform, though we’re unsure who exactly is scoring all these runs (edit: we’re told Rahil Ahmed is responsible for a substantial portion of them).

 Quick Haag vs VRA  13:05
Quick : 140-5 (30 overs)
Vikram Singh into the attack and finds immediate reward, bowls Mol for 32 in his first over. Stokkers in.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  13:00
HCC : 136-4 (30 overs)
Arya bags another two wickets in quick succession, Gorlee and Itagi stumped and caught respectively. He finishes with 4-38 from his ten overs, HCC will be glad to see the back of him. Overdijk in with Street now.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  12:57
Excelsior 105-5 (24.5 overs)
Another wicket for Gomes, as Van Wyk chips him to Navjit Singh at extra midwicket. Sanjit Shankar joins Parchment, who’s on 20.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  12:55
Quick : 130-4 (28 overs)
The partnership between Mol and Brand is proving obdurate, they’re on 30* and 15* respectively. Borren turns to spin for the first time, Turmaine into the attack.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  12:54
Excelsior 103-4 (22.3 overs)
Spin at both ends now, with Sharn Gomes pressed into the attack alongside Julian de Mey. He’s immediately rewarded with an LBW decision against Heggelman, propping well forward but out for 17. He conducts some geometrical calculations with his bat (purely in the interests of scientific inquiry, you understand) before departing. Lenert van Wyk succeeds him.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  12:33
HCC : 118-2 (22.2 overs)
Another down at het Loopveld too, Staal stumped for 43. Gorlee in.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  12:32
Quick : 104-4 (22 overs)
Hundred up for Quick too, but they’ve lost another, Ekelmans caught and bowled Borren. Brand joins Mol.

Sparta 19-2 (5.4 overs)
Make that 19-2 in the sixth.

Sparta 19-1 (4.2 overs)
They’re underway at Bermweg meanwhile, 19-1 in the fifth.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  12:21
Excelsior 76-3 (15 overs)
Drinks at Thurlede, with HBS once again taking their time in the field. But if you include the wides, they’ve bowled the equivalent of 17 overs. Parchment and Heggelman are busy with rebuilding.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  12:20
HCC : 100-1 (17.2 overs)
Hundred up for HCC, Staal still going on 39*

 Quick Haag vs VRA  12:05
Quick : 80-3 (17 overs)
Gul finds the wicket they wanted, Bista caught for 51 off 48 balls. Ekelmans joins Mol.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  12:03
Excelsior 60-3 (11.1 overs)
Three for Farshad Khan as Verhagen, having been dropped by Elkin off the previous ball of Westdijk’s previous over (Gibson having bowled just one from the City End), feathers the first ball of Khan’s next straight through to Elkin. Tom Heggelman in at five; reconstruction now a real priority.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  12:02
HCC : 85-1 (13 overs)
Much-needed breakthrough for the hosts, Wiffen goes for 44. Street at 3.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  11:54
Excelsior 52-2 (9.4 overs)
Having survived a very confident, nay insistent, appeal for LBW not playing a shot earlier in the over, Ingram pushes forward a little tentatively at Khan, who takes a stunning one-handed catch away to his right, and takes off towards square leg in celebration. Parchment joins Verhagen, with some reconstruction in order.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  11:53
HCC : 66-0 (10 overs)
Wiffen and Staal still rollicking along at het Loopveld, they’re on 33* and 27* respectively and going at better than a run-a-ball.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  11:50
Quick : 65-2 (12 overs)
Gul deprives Bista of a second partner, van Gigch caught Lake for 17. Doc Mol at four, Bista still there on 44.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  11:50
Everbody wants to bat first today, it seems. Sparta follow the trend at Bermweg.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  11:46
Dosti : 55-1 (10 overs)
Dosti meanwhile have recovered from Kingma’s early strike, 50 partnership for the second wicket at a brisk pace.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  11:39
Excelsior 41-1 (7.1 overs)
And Etman drives his first delivery waist-high to Barresi at mid-off. Lorenzo Ingram in at three.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  11:37
Excelsior 41-0 (7 overs)
Zk Gibson replaces Westdijk, and his first ball is lofted back over his head for four. Etman and Verhagen are.going for their shots, not always convincingly but certainly effectively. Etman especially: he has 28 out of Excelsior’s 41. Farshad Khan replaces Coster.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  11:33
HCC : 38-0 (6 overs)
Wiffen and Staal have gotten HCC off to a brisk start at her Looveld, meanwhile.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  11:27
Quick : 42-1 (7 overs)
Bista meanwhile ids taking full advantage of a reprieve after being put down in the slips, currently on 38 off 26 and looking ominous.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  11:24
Excelsior 23-0 (4 overs)
Westdijk continues to spray it around a bit, with a couple of very good deliveries into the bargain. The outfield’s looking pretty quick: Etman’s hit three fours, and Verhagen gets off the mark with a push through mid-on off Coster which almost goes all the way and yields a well-run three.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  11:20
Word is Sparta and VOC are having a little lie-in today, they’ll be starting at noon.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  11:17
Quick : 17-1 (5 overs)
One down at Nieuw Hanenburg too, Gunning has del Bianco caught behind. Van Gigch joins Bista.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  11:08
Excelsior 3-0 (1 over)
Berend Westdijk starts from the City End to Tim Etman, and opens with a wide. Then a single to cover point for Etman, Apart from another wide the rest of the over’s tidy enough, and Verhagen edges the final ball low to stand-in keeper Zac Elkin’s left. He just can’t hold onto it. Wessel Coster from the Chalet End.

 Dosti-United vs VCC  11:07
Dosti : 4-1 (1 over)
Early breakthrough at Westvliet as Kingma strikes in his first over.

 Sparta 1888 vs VOC  11:05
No word from Bermweg as yet, do get in touch if you have any intel for us…

 Dosti-United vs VCC  10:45
Dosti win the toss at Westvliet, they agree it’s a bat first kinda day.

 Excelsior ‘20 vs HBS  10:41
And good morning from Thurlede, where Wesley Barresi has called incorrectly and Tom Heggelman has elected to bat.

 Quick Haag vs VRA  10:37
The hosts win the toss at Nieuw Hanenburg too, and likewise fancy a bat.

 ACC Amsterdam vs HCC  10:33
HCC have the toss at het Loopveld, they’ll be batting first.

 Bertus de Jong  10:16
Good morning all and welcome back for what may prove the decisive round of Topklasse matches, Excelsior with a chance to claim the title today if results go their way. They need a win over HBS at Thurlede, and for ACC to deny HCC at het Loopveld if they are to claim the trophy today. Meanwhile Sparta and Quick will be jostling for position in the relegation showdown as they take on VOC and VRA respectively, whilst over at Drieburg VCC will be looking to make sure of their survival as they take on Dosti. Hope to have some toss news for you in about 15 minutes time.
