Saturday cricket: Worsley Cup hit by rain again
ALL of this afternoon's Foster's Worsley Cup quarter-final ties were abandoned as rain swept across East Lancashire yet again meaning the competition's semi-finals will be moved thanks to the bad weather.
And on yet another shocking afternoon, the entire programmes in both the Houldsworth Solicitors Ribblesdale League and FBS Northern League were also washed out.
All four Worsley Cup games were washed out last weekend and today's reserve date fell victim to the inclement weather with the ties between East Lancashire and Enfield, Church and Haslingden and Lowerhouse and Bacup called off before 12.30pm.
A major mopping up operation took place at Seedhill - but the unrelenting rain meant the Nelson v Accrington tie was also called off.
The abandoned ties will now be played next Sunday, which is scheduled as semi-final day.
And it also means Lowerhouse will be forced to concede their high-profile Lancashire Cup tie with Bootle as there is no spare date for that game.
Chorley had an open date in the Northern League - and Darwen also landed an unscheduled day off after their Birch Hall clash with Blackpool was called off with the rest of the league programme going the same way.
The entire Houldsworth Solicitors Ribblesdale League programme was wiped out. Play did start at the Clitheroe v Cherry Tree game and the clash between Ribblesdale Wanderers and leaders Barnoldswick before the rain returned.
