IT'S A WASHOUT FOR BRIGG CRICKETERS
Heavy rain resulted in the cancellation of Brigg Town Cricket Club's scheduled home game at the Recreation Ground.
Town were due to host bottom-of-the-table Cleethorpes 4ths in Lincolnshire County Cricket League Division Three.
Both teams have been awarded five points, in accordance with league rules, re-arrangements not being permitted.
Brigg remain fourth in the standings with five matches remaining before the season concludes in mid-September.
Due to the wet weather, not a single ball was bowled on Saturday in 18 scheduled games across the competition's five divisions.
This coming Saturday (August 3) Brigg find themselves without a fixture.
Town's next outing comes on Saturday, August 10 when they host mid-table Outcasts 2nds at the Recreation Ground. Hopefully sunny weather will have returned by then.
