Ushaw Moor to play their home games at Maiden Castle

Ushaw Moor finally got their Durham County League season under way last week after two previous washouts, and victory over Brandon demonstrated that their new look side could well be a force to be reckoned with – just as long as they can get some cricket played. But there is a big question mark over just when their home ground will be able to stage matches after the terrible spring weather left it in a dreadful state, and the league executive agreed an innovative and unique short term solution with the Moor granted special one-off dispensation to play their home games at Maiden Castle in Durham over the next few weeks to allow their ground time to recover.

The first of these ‘Maiden voyages’ should be a humdinger with Crook the first team to visit Moor’s home from home.

Ushaw make just one change from last week’s line-up, and that is an enforced one with John Southeran damaging his ankle tendons in last week’s game. Michael Hayton is called up in his place
