Hosepipe Ban In Tatters
Seniors XI v Juniors XI at Broxbourne Sports Club
Mon 09 Apr 2012 at 12.30pm
Intraclub fixture

Game off due to rain.

Due to rain all night and no improvement forecast by the Met Office, the game has been called off. 

Juniors skipper Toby Chasseaud, of Cricinfo fame, epr-empting the Groundsman by only 5 minutes said: "Lahrie and I have just been speaking on the phone and we've made the difficult executive decision to call off today's game. It's been raining a lot overnight and the outlook is both wet and windy, so we thought it'd be a pretty miserable day for all concerned at Broxbourne.

"Our apologies and hopefully see you next weekend. There are two games: one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Both are at Wray Crescent (nearest tube Finsbury Park). It's an artificial wicket, so no spikes please, and remember to bring tea for two. Please email Oliver Haill, the match manager, your availabilties for those. Ben is captaining the Saturday game and Lahrie the Sunday one.

"Hopefully see you next weekend. We're going to try to phone/text you all now in case you haven't picked up this email."

This news story hopefully reaches any who only have given us work emails, or for whom we have no mobile numbers.
