CLUB CRICKET Washout sweeps in from West

England & Wales Cricket Board logo There was all but a complete wash out in yesterday’s Cornwall Cricket League as torrential rain swept in from the West.

Only two of 67 fixtured league matches started in the county, at Truro and Porthleven.

In the Premier League Truro made 102 for 2 against St Austell at Boscawen Park before further rain caused an abandonment.

The top flight fixtures at Callington, Grampound Road, Redruth and Penzance were all washed out without a ball bowled.

It was a similar story in County Division 1 with all six games cancelled before lunchtime.

Rain affected most - if not all - matches in Devon and beyond.

The two top of the table Devon Premier clashes - leaders Exeter vs third placed Sidmouth and second placed Heathcoat versus fourth placed Plymouth - were washed off.

Rain stopped play at Exmouth, with the home side 76-2 against Bovey, while Sandford beat the rain to win by 106 runs at North Devon. Hatherleigh slipped to the bottom of the Premier following their rain affected two-wicket defeat by third from bottom Bradninch.

All six A Dvision games were washed off.

Three of the West of England Premier One games - at Bristol, Downend and Potterne - were abandoned while Bridgwater beat Frocester and Bedminster won at Goatacre in rain-affected matches.
