Radlett 260-9 drew with Welwyn Garden City 20-2 - match abandoned due to rain

Tom Jenkins continued his magnificent season with a splendid 78 in a sodden draw at Welwyn Garden City on Saturday, taking his season's total in the Home Counties Premier League to 543.

The Herts wicket-keeper maintained his place among the league's heavy run scorers as some consolation for Radlett's unlucky summer with the weather.

Three times previously rain had denied Shane Burger's side a likely win, and they dominated Welwyn Garden City before the premature closure.

Radlett, restricted by rain to 55 overs, scored 260-9 while the home side had reached 20-2 off 15 overs. Middlesex all-rounder Gareth Berg captured both wickets before the rain became too heavy to continue.

If this had been a full-length match, Welwyn would probably have been under pressure to salvage a draw.
