Monday Sport: Bad weather delays start of local cricket season

No play until April 28.

THE start to North Staffs and South Cheshire Cricket League season has been put back a week because of the weather.

Play in the eight divisions was due to commence this coming Saturday, but the season will now open on the following Saturday – April 28.

The decision to delay the start of the new cricket season has been taken to allow grounds more time to recover from the bad weather experienced over winter.

Fixtures scheduled for Saturday, April 21 will now be played on Saturday, September 22.
