[Week 10] Mottram CC 2nd XI vs Stalybridge St. Paul’s CC 2nd XI

13_heavy_rain_shower_nightWith only 15 balls faced, the heavens opened and despite having a new outfield fitted over the winter, and massive drainage works done at the same time, it still wasn’t enough to stop the duck ponds forming on the outfield, the blocked drains on the covers didn’t help causing a large overspill onto the track during the second spell of rain, so with little chance of the pitch drying out after tea (another good one btw – with paté!) was called early, the umpire made the decision to abandon the match.

  1. Stu – just been reading your scoreboard blog – very impressed with the progress you’ve made – looking at the size of the beast in the picture, it will take some handling – if a trolley is needed check out http://www.slingsby.com they’re not cheap but if you’ve put the work it to produce an electronic marvel- I don’t see the point in skimping on kit to move it safely.

  2. Cheers Pete, I know Nigel has been looking at a trolley for the existing board, I might let him pick one out for this.
