Rain falling on The Glen’s parade and skipper is frustrated
CRICKET: Wet weather again ruined The Glen's chance to finetune its game leading into the Frenchville Sports Club Capricorn Challenge finals.
Second-placed The Glen has all but assured its place in the preliminary final against Gracemere Bulls on March 14 and was to meet Capricorn Coast Parkana on Saturday in Yeppoon.
However, just like 10 days ago when The Glen was to meet the Bulls at Sun Valley, the game in Yeppoon was also abandoned without a ball being bowled.
To make matters worse for The Glen, the Gladstone-based team has a bye this weekend before a final minor-round hitout against top side Frenchville Falcons on Saturday week, also at Sun Valley.
The Glen captain Sam Lowry said while the rain has been great for the region, the timing was not the best.
"It's been hard because we haven't been able to train either due to the wet, but I've just been making sure everyone's switched on and trying to improve on certain aspects of our game," he said.
"It will be hard to get up when we've had a month off."
Falcons are well on top on 51 points, followed by The Glen in second on 40 points, with Gracemere Bulls on 38.
Then there is a gap with fourth-placed Cap Coast on 20 and CA Accounting Rockhampton Brothers a distant last on just four points.
Meanwhile, the Gladstone Cricket Incorporated Super League resumes this Sunday.
