The local cricket action was, yet again, ruined by the wet weather this weekend.

As one of the worst-ever starts to a cricket season, weather-wise, continues to frustrate the players, only eight games in the Readers Scarborough Beckett Cricket League - and four in the Derwent Valley League - were completed.

So far this year, due to the miserable weather 77 of the possible 170 Beckett League matches have been abandoned, which amounts to 45.3% of all games with seven teams having only played three out of nine possible matches and eight having had five abandoned.
