Archant

Seaton’s D Division promotion bid was hit by the weather when their game with Filleigh was ruined by the rain.

The Court Lane side were 43 with one wicket down when the rain brought a premature end to play.

That left Ben Morgan’s men banking just the six points a rained off match gets.

Morgan said: “I am afraid there are parallels with what happened to us 12 months ago, at about the same time too! It’s unfortunate, but we can’t afford to mope about and rue bad luck with the weather. There’s still plenty of cricket left this season and some big games to come!”

Seaton sit 16 points and two places adrift of second placed Shaldon.

All three of the teams above them in the table picked up more points, but none were able to play their game to a finish with rain hitting matches across the county.

On Saturday Seaton travel to champions-in-waiting Clyst Hydon after which they host third placed Ashburton before travelling to second placed Shaldon Optimists on August 17.

The next three games will certainly decide the Seaton destiny for the 3013 season.

Morgan says: “The run of three matches are massive and without doubt they will decide our season. We have the capability to rise to the occasion and get results in all three and will need to if we are to realise our dream of getting promotion this year.
