ONCE again the weather ripped the heart out of English sport as wind and rain caused havoc across the north west - pitches were waterlogged and transport made difficult as amateur sides struggled to fulfil fixtures.

Trafford MV's juniors however got the best of the deal as conditions improved on Sunday and the youngsters were able to train in glorious sunny conditions.

Trafford MV has great facilities and coaching for young people and are particularly keen to find girl cricketers aged 16-plus to grow the Women's Cricket section.
