Start To Season Delayed By Two Weeks

Start To Season Delayed By Two Weeks

Following a consultation process with the member clubs of the JW Lees Lancashire Cricket League, a clear majority of the clubs have voted to postpone the fixtures for the first two weeks of the season.

Therefore, all Senior Fixtures will be cancelled on the weekends of 13th /14th April and 20th /21st April.

The season will now commence on Saturday 27th April for the third and fourth eleven fixtures and Sunday 28th April for the first and second eleven fixtures.

The League realise that this will not suit every club, but the decision is a compromise based on the unprecedented rainfall in the past months and the poor forecast for the coming week.

The delay in starting the season will hopefully see an improvement in the weather and allow grounds personnel to work on the grounds and prepare for a late start to the 2024 season.

A further discussion will take place at the League Management Committee Meeting on Wednesday 24th April to see if dates can be rearranged to replay the fixtures.
