The weather rains, okay!
Thursday, 21st June 2001.
THE smell of freshly-mown green sward on a hot summer's day proved conspicuously absent from the cricket fields of Mid-Anglia over the weekend.
A most unseasonal downpour on Saturday meant the programme was obliterated in divisions across the region.
Every game in the East Anglian Premier League and Tucker Partnership was void, the Hargreaves Two Counties saw just two completed fixtures, while the Solidworks DCCA was also brought to its knees.
It was a frustrating day all round, and although some fixtures went ahead the following day, Saturday was a wash-out.
Captured here is the scene at Haverhill - a situation mirrored across the area. For Haverhill, the day was especially frustrating, owing to the fact that their game was of vital importance in Division Four of the Two Counties. They were due to host Little Bardfield in a match that would have gone a long way towards deciding the title. Mildenhall suffered similar frustration
