PREDICTABLY cricket was hit hard by the weather at the weekend with only one match played in the Harrogate region.

Whilst the Aire Wharfe and York Senior League saw the majority of their games were wiped out, somehow Masham and Darley played in Nidderdale Division Two. Darley won the contest by four runs.

The weather, however, gave the opportunity for teams to enjoy themselves by trying their hand at other sports on the flooded outfields.

Meanwhile, the Harrogate Evening League is due to start on Wednesday.

However, it will remain to be seen whether grounds in the region have dried out after the recent deluge.

Weather permitting, the The inaugural John Barrett Trophy match is set to take place on Sunday at Pannal Cricket Club when a Joe Lumb XI will take on a Former Nidderdale U-23 Joe Lumb XI.

The Joe Lumb team will be: Cameron Pitt (Captain), Tom Beasley (Wicket Keeper), Adam Crawford-Porter,Josh Crewe, Sam Crompton, Josh Cutts, Sam Davies, Alex Gates, Ashley Griffin, Ben Kettlewell, Elliott Oates, Robert Taylor, Steven Townsend - Scorer Jimmy Griffin.
