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.
Well over 55% of the Derwent Valley League games have also been lost to the weather, and with the season already at the halfway stage teams will be hoping for a much better second half of the campaign.
Scarborough first team’s Yorkshire League game at Hull and Scarborough 2nds’ home York Senior League division three game with Sessay were called off, as was Flixton’s division one fixture at Bolton Percy.
