Chris Bowmer of Greens Norton CC wanted this, but rain prevented play, still equal top of the league
Another rain report this week following the cancellation of our away game at Radway (in the South Northants League despite being in Warwickshire).
The week had appeared promising with several mostly dry days following a dry weekend and on Friday evening Radway (@Radwaycc) reported that the pitch had been prepared and looked playable. Cakes were baked for teas. Sadly overnight rain was too much.
Covering the wicket apparently made no difference as the rain made its way underneath the covers and left standing water on the outfield, no way to play.
It is a shame to miss playing away at Radway, this is another picturesque ground, under the shadow of Edge Hill witness to the only 20/20 100 for Greens Norton, some years ago. Clearly the hill a problem for early season weather!
So with only one game this week still equal top of the league!
