CRICKET: Soggy end to the Cambs & Hunts Premier League season
PUBLISHED: 13:05 17 September 2017
The final day of the Cambs & Hunts Premier League season was all but washed out.
Only 7.5 overs of cricket was possible in the closing round of Whiting & Partners Division One fixture.
They were played at Waresley, where Godmanchester Town reached 21-3, before persistent rain set in.
Australian ace Michael Ninneman claimed two of those wickets to take his debut season tally to 52 – the best in the league.
The fixture between Ramsey and Eaton Socon, and St Ives’ clash against Nassington, were cancelled.
Ramsey have proved to be the pick of the local sides by finishing as runners-up, with Waresley claiming a fine fifth.
Eaton Socon ended the campaign eighth with Godmanchester a further place behind. Bottom side St Ives managed just one win all summer as their top-flight return ended in relegation.
The wet weather ended promoted Kimbolton’s hopes of title success in Whiting & Partners Division Two.
They had to settle for a runners-up finish after their derby date at fifth-placed Huntingdon & District was cancelled without a ball being bowled.
Relegated Warboys conceded a third successive match when unable to raise a side for a trip to Blunham. They have finished the season on -69 points.
