Flooding at Linzee Gordon Park has forced Buckie Cricket Club to once again seek an alternative venue for a home gameBUCKIE Cricket Club (BCC) have been forced to change the venue for their home league tie this Saturday.

The side had been due to face Northern Counties in a crunch league title clash at Linzee Gordon Park, but have now been forced to hold the game in Cooper Park, the home of Elgin Cricket Club.

BCC president Eadie Walls told the Advertiser: "The flooding situation at Linzee Gordon Park has again forced us to seek an alternative venue for what was supposed to be a home game.

 "It's not something we want to do but we've got no choice as our own ground is unplayable. We're very grateful to have the use of Cooper Park so that the game can go ahead.

"We've only been able to play two ties at Linzee Gordon Park this season because of the flooding and we really hope Moray Council will have some sort of solution in place soon."

The game is scheduled to get underway at 1pm.

This week's Advertiser (Cricketers demand action as flooding stops play at park) saw the club issue a plea for the steadily worsening situation Linzee Gordon Park, which has alreadyy forced the Buckie Classic Car Show to move to a new site at Cunningholes.
