As I walk up to the Cliffe, the weather is great for Ducks. This rain may mean we have a delayed start today but hopefully clears up soon.
Meanwhile, what do we know about today’s visitors….they were Members of the Central Lancashire League since 1896 prior to joining our league this season. As I while away some minutes researching them, unlike our neighbours Church, their bar is open everyday bar Wednesday….even for games. Famous people from Crompton are actress Shobna Gulati and former Oldham Athletic player and manager Andy Ritchie.
Team News!- late change as Paul Whalley comes in for Dave Kendall. Good and bad news really as Paul makes a good addition to team, but bar takings will be down!!
GHCC to bat first.
Slightly later start of 1:30pm declared by the umpires…. but this comes and goes as drizzle remains. Weather Looks set.
1st Innings – eventually starts at 2:03pm. 36 over game.
Doesn’t last long as umpires take the players off when rain actually not as bad as was when they started.
Game over as Captains shake hands. Both umpires never looked interested to be honest.
On to next week…..
