There was disappointment for Yorkshire Academy captain Alex Lees, above, yesterday when no play was possible in their Solly Sports ECB Yorkshire County Premier League match at York.
Numerous pools of water were standing on many parts of the outfield, and captains Dan Woods and Lees decided at 12.20pm that the game had to be abandoned, each side taking three points.
Yorkshire lie fifth in the League’s latest table of 14 with 24 points from five matches – 15 behind York who have played a fixture more. Sheffield Collegiate (also six matches) are second with 38 points, Harrogate third (five) with 33, and Barnsley (six) fourth with 25.
The Academy have recorded only one complete win in 2013, but they have two incomplete wins, and they have not suffered an outright defeat.
