Overnight rain cancels games

Heavy overnight rain put paid to Blyth Cricket Club’s fixtures at the weekend.

Blagdon called the first XI game off late morning while the second team’s match was also cancelled due to the ground being flooded.

As the league starts the second half of the season, Blyth firsts are seventh in the table.

They have an 80-point cushion from the bottom two.

Blyth seconds are still struggling at the bottom of their league.

Next weekend Blyth firsts are at home to Blue Flames at 1pm.

The second XI travel to Whitley Park to play Blue Flames seconds with a 1.30pm start.
