Wet weather may have denied Coffs Harbour’s cricketers a spot in the SCG Country Cup finals.

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.
