The NEHL fixture at Thornley on 10 Feb was postponed due to the car field being waterlogged. It looks as though the revised date will be Thornley Hall on 13th April.  Otherwise the final fixture is at Lambton on 17 March.

Current standings in the Harrier League have Alfie Gook leading the Individual U15 Boys Grand Prix, Jack Hendry in 3rd place in the U17 Mens Individual Grand Prix, Daniel Alexander in 2nd place in the Senior Men, Shona Haston in 1st place in the Senior Women, and Steven Medd in 4th in the Vet Men.   In the team divisions the U17 Men are in 4th place just outside the top 3, the U17/U20 Women are in 5th.  The Senior Men are sitting 2nd in Division 1.  A good turnout for the last match would see teams moving up the divisions.
