The 2012 season will be remembered as an ‘On & Off’ season. March being the driest for several years and catching a number of clubs out with their Pre-season preparations. Then the weather changed, once it started to rain it did not know when to stop and it was difficult to get a dry day the cut and prepare the wickets for the games to be played. Thanks must go to the volunteers who helped prepare the ground and wickets during the very difficult season to get the games played.
