Overnight rain resulted in a third day without play in Derbyshire’s Specsavers County Championship fixture versus Kent at Queen’s Park, Chesterfield.
Poor weather in the build-up to the fixture, followed by overnight rain on Wednesday leading into Thursday at Chesterfield, caused soft ground conditions around the edge of the square which umpires deemed unfit for play on the opening three days.
The umpires inspected at 12.30pm and with little improvement to the certain areas of outfield, play was abandoned.
Gary Wilson, Captain in the absence of the injured Billy Godleman, said: “All that rain in the build-up left the outfield just too wet and it’s now raining again on Thursday. It’s unfortunate because everyone wanted to see a game. We all love playing at Queen’s Park and we wanted to play another game here.”
Supporters with matchday tickets for the first three days should retain their tickets and this can be used on the final day of the 2017 season.
Alternatively, if a supporter is unable to attend, a refund may be claimed by applying in writing to the ticket office enclosing your ticket(s) along with your name and address.
