St.Georges 2nd XI at home v Quatt. The first ball of the season is despatched by Mike Myatt  to the boundary with a stylish slip  drive.  He lost his off stump a few overs later trying to replicate the shot. After 9 overs some horizontal rain forced the players off the field with the score at 47 / 1. Take a look at that sky. No doubt about it – this drought is really becoming a big worry. From this reasonable start the innings then collapsed to 106/9 with U15 pair Joe Gaut and Chris Birkett helping get the score to 3 figures. The rain then put paid to any further play. There was only one over played in the first XI match at Quatt.  The 3rd XI were handed a win by Church Stretton who could not raise a side, and Sunday’s 4th XI match at Llanidloes was called off early Sunday due to a waterlogged pitch.
