Nettles have sting


Skegness CC’s Lincs ECB Premier fixture at Woodhall Spa was called off on Saturday, both sides settling for five points.

With Grimsby picking up 11 points against Market Deeping, only three points separate the bottom three now, increasing the stakes in Saturday’s match at Richmond Drive against second-bottom Nettleham.

Some might say it is a must win game for the Skegness against the newcomers, who beat them at Mulsanne Park earlier in the campaign.

Nettleham’s game against Lindum was also washed out this week, but seven days earlier they beat Grimsby on Humberside - and so Skegness can expect a tough game when the Nettles revisit the coast.
