East Preston v
Even whilst waiting for transport in the car park at EP, it was pretty obvious that there was going to be no play today.
Thankfully, we didn’t have to go through the usual rigmarole of turning up at the opposition ground and waiting for two hours until someone decided to call proceedings off as we got a call from Chipps as we were driving to
As it turned out, only three games in the whole league actually started, and they only lasted a few overs each, so everyone got the standard eight points – given that you can play pretty poorly and still get ten or more points (remember our draw at Crawley Eagles), perhaps it is about time that the league looked at this!
Still, at least we went up one place in the table as Portslade were not due to play, so we are fifth, just two points behind Ram but there are only seven points separating the four teams from fourth to seventh, meaning that there is still a lot to play for in the remaining three games.
Clymping coming up this week, and they will be looking to make amends for their first defeat of the season that EP inflicted on them back at the end of May, when the weather was also pretty poor.
Perhaps the next EPCC merchandise should be sponsored wetsuits!
