Fixture secretaries and ground staff will be keeping everything crossed for a break in the weather this weekend, particularly on Sunday with several competitions drawing to a conclusion.
Bristol, for example, will be hoping it’s a case of third time lucky when they prepare to host Frocester in a much-delayed Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Cup quarter-final (1.30pm). The winners will be away to holders Bishopston.
In the other half of the draw, Knowle host Cheltenham on Sunday for a place in the final which will be staged at a neutral venue on September 8.
Hambrook, meanwhile, conceded their Stuart Canvas Gloucestershire Trophy quarter-final against Langford who now travel on Sunday to Hawkesbury Upton to fight it out for a place in the final.
In the other half of the draw, Charlton Kings host Kingsholm, also on Sunday, ahead of the final at Frenchay on September 1.
Sunday action is further scheduled in the U19 T20 Blast quarter-finals with Bradley Stoke due to host Cheltenham (5pm) while on Tuesday it’s Twyford House against Dumbleton (6.15pm).
Holders Frocester will be home to Bedminster on August 26 (5pm) in a repeat of last season’s final while Winterbourne Dragons and Bristol YMCA are still discussing a new date after rain this week washed out their scheduled last-eight clash.
Gloucestershire Over 50s, too, are due to play on Sunday when they make a second attempt to complete their ECB Over 50 Championship quarter-final against champions Yorkshire at Apperley (1pm).
Heavy showers ended last weekend’s clash at Frocester after the home side reached a 45-over total of 211-9.
Hugh Leeke (51) top scored with former county captain and England one-day international Mark Alleyne contributing 46 and opener Andy Chidgey 37 before the innings fell away.
There is just one change to the home side, Shirehampton wicketkeeper Andy Geddes coming back into the starting line-up. The winners of Sunday’s match will be away to Lancashire who edged Leicestershire & Rutland by 12 runs.
