Cromer Lifeboat Cup suspended

The annual Lifeboat Cup competition at Cromer has been suspended, after a double dose of ground trouble.The historic competition dating back 105 years, which raises more than �2,000 for the RNLI each season, had already hit trouble because it could not use its traditional Cabbell Park home for some of the earlier rounds due to a fixture backlog at the host Cromer club caused by the recent bad weather.

The annual Lifeboat Cup competition at Cromer has been suspended, after a double dose of ground trouble.

The historic competition dating back 105 years, which raises more than �2,000 for the RNLI each season, had already hit trouble because it could not use its traditional Cabbell Park home for some of the earlier rounds due to a fixture backlog at the host Cromer club caused by the recent bad weather.

Now its Plan B has also hit a hitch, because games due to be held at Holt instead have been hit by a floodlight failure there.

Organiser Derek Hinds said an emergency meeting of cup committee had been called and further details of the future of this year's competition would be announced as soon as possible afterwards.

The final is due to be held on Bank Holiday Monday, May 3 at Cabbell Park.
