Find out who's playing for the 1st and 2nd XI in their upcoming fixtures this weekend.
After months of waiting, in typical fashion, the heavens opened and the first competitive weekend of the North Staffs and South Cheshire League season was rain affected. Luckily both games managed to get in some form of result.
The 1st XI had their game abandoned after just one innings, with Alex Mellor top scoring on 27 runs. They picked up 6 points in the first game of the season. The 2nd XI were also rain affected, however, they managed to finish the game and completed a comfortable win over Caverswall. A full match report of both games can be found here.
It may have been a slightly different viewing experience for some supporters, as well as the players, due to the new rule changes, which included sanitising every 6 overs or 20 minutes. For anyone that hasn't familiarised themselves with the changes, they can be found here. All league rules for this season can also be found here.
Saturday 25th July sees our two seeing teams playing once again. The 1st XI travel to newly promoted Bagnall Norton, and the 2nd XI have their first home game agains Stafford.
