Hoping to see some sun, Brigg Town Cricket Club players journey to one of the prettiest grounds in North Lincolnshire on Saturday (May 18).
Brigg will be taking on Outcasts 2nds at the Hirst Priory ground between Crowle and Belton in the rural Isle of Axholme.
This is a Lincolnshire County Cricket League Division Three fixture (1.30pm start). In the same section, Broughton 2nds will be hosting Lindum 3rds.
Hibaldstow also have a home game, entertaining Clee Town Laportes in Division Two.
In Division One, Broughton first teamers visit Marsh Lane to take on Barton Town.
Not for the first time this season, rain ruined Brigg Town's game last weekend (May 11).
The club's first home match of the campaign was abandoned before the halfway point.
Mark Dawson made a fine 63 and David Baggott an unbeaten 38 as Town reached 134 for eight after 30.1 overs of the scheduled 45 against visiting Lindum 3rds at the Recreation Ground.
That innings earned Mark a place in the league's honours board of top performances across the five divisions (see below).
Brigg lost their opening game, have had two other fixtures abandoned due to rain and secured a walk-over win after their scheduled opponents failed to raise a team.
That adds up to 35 points gained from four games, which puts Brigg in third spot behind leaders Broughton 2nds and Haxey 2nds, though Town have had one more fixture than their rivals.

Hibaldstow also have a team in the North Lindsey League, playing on Sundays.
Last weekend, two of their most experienced players were in form during a good away win.
Jerry Thomas top scored at Haxey with 31 in a total of 143. The Isle side then replied with 116 all-out as Jon Taylor picked up 3 for 4.
This Sunday (May 19) Hibaldstow will be visiting Alkborough.
