A WEEKEND washout saw Abergele, Prestatyn and St Asaph having their respective cricket fixtures cancelled without a ball being bowled.

The three sides were left frustrated for only the second time this summer as torrential rain lashed down across the region leaving a small number of games in the various league going ahead.

Prestatyn’s home tie against Ainsdale was cancelled, leaving David Harris’ side still searching for a win to kickstart their Liverpool and District Competition First Division season following a difficult start.

They currently sit third-from-bottom in the standings ahead of their trip to Sefton Park on Saturday, with the Beach Close outfit’s second unit aiming to halt a run of four straight defeats during a home clash against St Helens Town 2nds.

North Wales Cricket League Premier Division title hopefuls St Asaph are chasing new leaders after Menai Bridge’s game survived the downpour and enabled the defending champions to leapfrog rivals Bangor, with the Saints’ home encounter against Mochdre cancelled without play.

This leaves Will Ryan’s men in sixth spot and 27 points behind the early pacesetters, and the city side will look to close the gap this Saturday when they travel to Connah’s Quay, who have lost their last five.

Abergele shared three points apiece with North Wales Cricket League Division One rivals Hawarden Park following their cancellation, with Karl Higgins’ talented but underachieving squad hoping for better fortune this Saturday during their home fixture against newly promoted Ruthin.
