Play­ers left frus­trated as rain forces an early halt

Llanelli Star - - CRICKET -

PLAY­ERS from both teams were left frus­trated when the much-an­tic­i­pated fix­ture be­tween Bron­wydd and Llandy­sul in di­vi­sion one of the South Wales Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion was aban­doned af­ter only five overs.

The ground­staff had worked through­out the week to get a pitch ready for the game and con­di­tions were ac­cept­able to the um­pires for a prompt start.

Af­ter los­ing the toss, Bron­wydd bat­ted first and reached 17 with­out loss when a heavy shower re­sulted in the um­pires tak­ing the play­ers off the field.

Af­ter around half-an-hour, the rain stopped and again the ground­staff, with the help of the Bron­wydd play­ers, tried to dry out the ar­eas around the pitch. The um­pires made reg­u­lar inspection­s and agreed that tea would be taken early and they would in­spect again at 3.45pm. But this in­spec­tion con­vinced the um­pires that con­di­tions were not suit­able and the game was aban­doned.

The game was spon­sored by Hugh Har­ries HRE Builders, Barry Davies, Rees Elec­tri­cal En­gi­neer­ing So­lu­tions, Stu­art Phillips a’r Bois and Tommy Williams of New Stag’s Head.
