Tweed wins wet cup game
THE wet weather has scuppered Coffs Harbour’s campaign in the SCG Country Cup.
The representative clash against Tweed Heads on Sunday did not see a single ball delivered.
As Tweed Heads were deemed the higher-ranked team, they progress through to the round of 16.
The statewide country cricket competition that pits representative teams against each other in a knockout format is financially lucrative to those associations that qualify to be one of the final 16 teams.
It was a disappointing result for the Coffs Harbour team which knew the consequences that a no-result would bring.
Both teams turned up at Kings- cliff’s Reg Dalton Oval early on Sunday but discovered a damp wicket after days of rain.
Umpires were happy to wait a while to see if conditions improved enough for play to begin in a safe environment but it was a wait in vain.
Play was abandoned shortly after 1pm much to the Coffs Harbour team’s disappointment.
