Weekend Washout – ALL Pennine Cricket League Fixtures Cancelled
Friday 29th April 2016 @ 16:22 by Mark Phillip

The following is a statement from the Pennine Cricket League Official Website:

With the poor weather this week culminating in many of our grounds awakening to a blanket of snow this morning, a heavy-hearted decision to cancel all this weekend’s fixtures has been made.

The decision has taken into account the already fragile state of many PCL grounds with player safety at the forefront as well as the ethos of quality of cricket over quantity.

Therefore, all scheduled 1st and 2nd XI matches on Saturday and Sunday, along with U13s on Sunday morning will not be played, a discussion on possible rearrangements will take place at the league meeting at Middleton on Tuesday (3rd May).

At this stage, a final decision has yet to be made on Monday’s double-header 3rd XI T20 games as only four grounds are involved – Ashton, Middleton, Heyside and Littleborough. More news and updates will follow.

May we take this opportunity to thanks all clubs for their patience and updates today, let’s hope for better weather very soon!
