The torrential rain showers washed out virtually all cricket for Woodhouse Grange CC at the weekend.

On Saturday, the first, second and third team league games were abandoned without a ball being bowled.

The fourth team did manage to bowl just over 25 overs in their match against Pocklington Seconds, and this enabled them to pick up an extra bonus point. Richard Readman (43) and Gary Milner (21) played good innings for Pocklington, but Woodhouse claimed six wickets to reduce them to 97-6. Pat Durkin took 2-34 and Harry Shipley 2-42, while Matthew Robertson and Michael Gilbank claimed a wicket each.

There were three catches for Luke Bailey, before James Saltmer (23 not out) and Daniel Croft (26 not out) enabled Pocklington to recover to 151-6 before a final downpour finished the game, giving the sides 10 points each.

On Sunday, the first team’s Davidstow National Village Cup round two game at Spofforth was abandoned early in the day due to a waterlogged ground. This fixture will now revert to Sutton on Derwent next Sunday, 18 May, with a 1pm start.

The Saturday league fixtures see the first team away to Dunnington, second team at home to Heworth, the third team away to Easingwold, while the fourth team are at home to Tadcaster Magnets.

On Sunday, the intermediates visit Malton and Old Malton.
