CCL Season set for low key start

16th April 2018 Posted in League by Michael Weeks

Only 13 Fixtures survive on the Opening Day


The LWC Drinks Cornwall Cricket League gets underway on Saturday but it will be a low key opening day.

The very wet spring has caused problems for many clubs with their ground preparations.

After surveying all clubs the League decided to move the five Premier League games en bloc to August Bank Holiday Monday.

The rest of the League were given the option to reschedule games, by mutual consent, to any Sunday or spare Bank Holiday.

With Divisions 6 & 7 not starting until May a total of 59 games were originally scheduled for Saturday 21st April.

However of these only 13 games remain as fixtures, with some visiting teams opting not to reschedule against the request of the home club.

Any games not played will be classed as a cancellation, with each team awarded six points.

All games in County Division 1 have been postponed and only five of the 24 Tier 2 games in Divisions 2 & 3, at Newquay, St Austell, Hayle, St Neot and St Newlyn East have survived.

In Tier 3 games remain at Bude, Luckett, St Minver, Tintagel and Werrington in the east and at Gulval, Leedstown (Hayle 2) and Mullion in the west.
