It rained all day Thursday, it rained all day Friday, it rained most of Saturday morning…but we were assured that Witham’s 2nd pitch would be like Eden Gardens in a drought.
So despite dropping two star names from the team (Darren discovering that one week is not enough to recover from an eye operation !) and gambling that 10 players would be enough, we watched the drizzle for a while then jointly agreed with the oppo that any form of game was going to ruin the square.
Many thanks to the former players* who returned for a one-off (Tony & Ketan) and to all for making a fruitless trip. Better luck next week at Maldon !
* all properly registered with the league, no shenanigans here
