IT was a Bank Holiday Saturday to forget for the local cricketers with rain the only winner.

Many matches did not get under way and the few that did were soon halted as the elements took over.

It meant that bragging rights were put on hold with local derbies including Parkfield Liscard v Caldy, Ellesmere Port v Port Sunlight and Maritime v Tranmere Vics amongst the weather victims.
