Admittedly the prognosis for Saracens survival is not overly promising but there is yet hope.
Barring outbreaks of plague and concessions, Dan Goord needs to lead his team to victory to have any hope of staying at the rarefied heights of Division 7B.
Victory will lift Offley to 257 points and guarantee ninth place (Woohoo!) and ensure an exciting season of Division 8A cricket in 2022.
If Offley win (And why wouldn't they win against a Northchurch side who desperately need to win to clinch promotion to 7A and feel there was something dubious about the earlier Covid cancellation which has deprived them the chance of playing for the title on the last day of the season?) Shenley Village will need to take five points from their fixture at Harpenden Dolphins to ensure survival without recourse to tiebreakers, etc.
If the teams finish level on points then presumably Shenley Village, home of Beardy Shipman, will come out on top on the strength of narrowly winning the game between the teams earlier in the year.
If Offley lose and Kings Langley upset the form book and beat third-placed Ware, it will probably mean a two-division drop.
Either way it will mean a very different set of fixtures in 2022 so embracing defeat means embracing change which is never necessarily a bad thing.
