Cricket is washed out

It’s been a hugely frustrating year for the area’s winter sports teams following a diabolical few months of weather, and cricket is now getting a taste of it too with an opening day wash out.

Despite a pleasant couple of days, the wet weather throughout April has prevented many clubs from getting onto their pitches to prepare them properly for the opening day of the Shropshire County Cricket League season.

Welshpool’s Division One home match with Knockin and the seconds’ game at St Georges are off, along with Montgomery’s Division Two home match with Hodnet and seconds’ trip to Knockin. It is hoped that matches can be rearranged.

Guilsfield & Llandrinio were already well aware that they were not playing today in Division Four and, like many clubs across the league, have planned a much needed day’s ground maintenance.

Montgomery Cricket Club posted: “Everyone is welcome to come down to Lymore (pictured) to help us prepare the ground to ensure we get our campaign started on Saturday 28 April.”
