Menorca v Celtic
Despite valiant attempts to concoct some form of a game on Saturday,regrettably the elements ran out winners with play abandoned mid afternoon.
Sunday however, did see a 30 over game completed between some torrential rain storms. As I write this it has rained incessantly since stumps were drawn and more than half the island has been without electricity for over 24 hours.

It was the end of an era at Biniparrell yesterday. Following 25 years of continuous tours to the home of Balearic cricket Celtic announced that they have reached the end of the road. A mixture of father time and family commitments have finally caught up with the Kent stalwarts.
Presentations were made at the close of play by Celtic legend Micky Back to Menorca skipper Simon Cotton who reciprocated by presenting them with a engraved glass shield thanking them for their continued support over the last 25 years.
It was a fitting end to another successful season for Menorca CC. The club continues to go from strength to strength and thanks were given to all who've contributed in whichever way shape or form.
