All teams in action this weekend will be playing in Division 2 next season after the relegation of Nile last weekend and the survival of Tornado from relegation to Division 3.

Partidar has conceded the biggest margin of runs in a single inning this season after Charity scored 535 runs against them. The former champions have been woeful this season failing to win a single game this campaign.

Their rivals Nile have had better and were only relegated because Charity had a better run in the second round. They were the only other team that defeated Kutchi Tigers besides KICC, Tornado B and Damani in round one.

David Musoke and his boys will have to quickly adjust to life in Div 2 next season if they are to make an immediate come back to the big time.

Tornado and Wanderers face off in Buddo in what used to be a fierce battle in the good old days. Tornado managed to see off ACC last week a win that moved them out of the relegation place to be safe for now.

If Jinja SS fail to defeat ACC in their final game in their final game of the season Tornado will stay in Div 2. The position doesn’t do any justice to their team as they boast of some of the best U19 players in the country.

Wanderers is on a roll after picking up back to back wins against SKPLS and Premier and they would want to finish the season on a high. Even if they win tomorrow Wanderers can only finish as high as 4th with the top 3 teams in the race for promotion competing in a league of their own.

Given the history of the 2 sides its only a matter of time before they can reorganize get back in Div 1 and then challenge for the title.

The results of this weekend all have no relevance to the table standings with little or no movement on the either Div 1 or Div 2 tables.
