Wet start to the 2018 season

This weekend’s  Cricket  is CANCELLED

It is with regret that the Heavens have won.

The ground is terribly waterlogged.

It will not be fit for any cricket this weekend despite all the hard work that has been undertaken in recent weeks by the Groundstaff. In fact, even yesterday the team were out on the (then dry-ish) Ground and were even cutting wickets in preparation for the curtain raiser to the season this Saturday.

Sadly, the over night rain came and has now flooded the ground as the water table is so high and  water has settled on the ground as the below images show.

As a result, the opening match of the 2018 season this Saturday v. Neil Goodman’s Old Milfieldians side has sadly  been cancelled.

Disappointment is an understatement.
