Bassetlaw Cricket League

The weather was the big winner in the Bassetlaw League as no games made it to a result and several never started at all as rain swept across the region on Saturday.

One game that did see action was Firbeck Colliery’s trip to Edwinstowe in Division One.

And Firbeck might have been quite glad when the rain did come to put an end to proceedings after Edwinstowe racked up 172-3 in the time at the wicket with Tom Ward (51) and Andy Edwards (42no) and Jamie Peacock (33no) all scoring well.

Elsewhere in Division One, Everton’s game with Clumber Park fell victim to the weather from the word go and was abandoned without a ball being bowled.

That was also the story for Anston, Worksop and Kiveton Park in the Premier Division as all three saw their games washed out.

Ordsall Bridon also suffered a washout in Division Two, while Anston 2nd reached just 9-0 against Thoresby Colliery before the game was abandoned.

In Division Three, both Bawtry and Retford 2nd saw their games abandoned without a ball being bowled.

Clumber Park 2nd had reason to be frustrated in Division Four as they reached 151-3 against Everton 2nd with Jim Delaney (55), Chris Brammall (44no) and Adam Bellamy (36no) all going well before the rain set in.

In the same division, Worksop 2nd were more grateful for the rain as they had slumped to 117-8 against East Drayton before the weather ended things early.
