WEEK six of the North Devon Holiday Homes Cricket League was washed out, with not a ball bowled at any of the 19 scheduled matches.It was set to be the first matchday of the season, when each of the top four divisions played a full programme of matches.The top flight games at Heathcoat, Lynton, Sandford and Victoria Park all met a watery grave.In Division Two, the games at Barnstaple & Pilton, Bratton Fleming and Shobrooke Park were also off. They even tried to switch the Holsworthy versus Morebath from North to Mid Devon, but the weather won the day there, too!The Division Three games at Bude, Shebbear and Westleigh were off, but they left it as late as possible at Ilfracombe, where the home pitch was actually in excellent condition, but the gathering clouds opened late morning and washed any hopes away.Weare Giffard had been set to play two Division Four games, but the rain stopped them both at Newton Tracey II and at home to Lynton & Lynmouth II. North Devon II and Bideford II were the other games off in this section and in the basement division the games off were at North Molton and the season's new pair of Belstone and Petrockstowe.
