Delayed Blincoe Cup final set for weekend

Peel & St John's B take on Valkyres B

The closing match of the Manx cricket season goes ahead on Saturday with the final of the Blincoe Cup.

This was due to take place last weekend, but the game was abandoned because of the heavy rain which swept the Island.

The two sides are Valkyres B and Peel & St John’s B.

The delay may well have boosted the Saints' chances of success, with some players who were originally unavailable now in line for selection.

On the other hand, Valkyres were able to get in some much needed match practice on Sunday with an inter-club game to celebrate the club’s 50th anniversary.

The final on Saturday takes place at Mullen-e-Cloie with a 1pm start.
