By Brian Sanderson,

To-day was a forty over match between Yorkshire Seconds against Warwickshire. at Weetwood with the forecast of rain at about 4.00 o,clock.When will the rain stop.

I have the job of selling the programmes before the match so Iwalked round the ground with dark clouds in the distance.Peter France was already position in the wind break of the pavilion so another mark in the register for P.C.W.Yorkshire batted first but started very slowly against some  reason able bowling.Yorkshire first wicket fell at in the fourteenth over and the score was 27.Lees  had scored seven and when Sayers was out he had scored eleven  a few overs later. The best bowler was Tom Grundy who comes from Stratford and had figures of five for seventeen in his eight overs.Tony Hutton arrived during the innings and said there was a match New Rover were Yorkshire over sixties were playing a friendly.I nearly went over until Bob Procter arrived. The conversation was better than the cricket.The last wicket partnership of forty brought the score up to 125 and it was helped by extras of twenty-two which was the second highest scorer.

Warwickshire innings started quickly with Jonathan Webb and Laurie Evans show want poor bowling attack
Yorkshire Seconds have.By the time the heavy rain arrived  just after four they had scored 89 for 1 in fourteen overs.Yorshire had scored 27 at  same stage.

There was poor cricket by Yorkshire but I did not have to travel far.See want to-morrow brings at Stamford Bridge against the same two sides.
