The poor weather finally took its toll on the Hevey Building Supplies Northamptonshire Cricket League over the weekend.

Only a small number of matches across the 15 divisions survived the wet conditions with just one being completed in the Premier Division.

But it was a game and a result that could prove crucial at the end of the season as bottom side Horton House closed the gap on Burton Latimer and Wollaston with a winning draw against the latter.

Batting first, Horton reached 185-6 in 55 overs with Andrew Neate (48no) and Tom Leonard (34) scoring well.

Wollaston’s innings was eventually reduced to 48 overs and they closed on 125-6 as opener Matthew Jones (55no) led them to safety with ease.

Just six overs were possible at Redwell Road as leaders Northampton Saints reached 24-0 before play was ended while second-placed Peterborough had reduced Rushton to 49-2 after 17 overs when their game was abandoned.

It was a similar tale at Campbell Park as the NCCC Academy were 16-1 from five overs against Finedon Dolben when the rain came.

No play was possible in Burton’s home clash with Stony Stratford and Brixworth’s game against Old Northamptonians.
