Yorkshire: Flooded clubs can apply for emergency help
An emergency fund to help flood-hit lower league cricket teams has been set up by Yorkshire County Cricket club.
Many pitches are completely underwater, with a major repair job required before teams can host games again.
Yorkshire, in conjunction with the England and Wales Cricket Board, say clubs who need help can apply for aid.
In a statement on its website, Yorkshire asks clubs to send information about what is insured, which damage is repairable, long-term issues and an estimate of the bill to fix them.
The ECB, which also provides advice and support for clubs affected, will help with the clean-up operation.
Many cricket clubs throughout Lancashire have also been hard-hit, after more than 200 flood warnings and alerts were issued in the aftermath of the heavy rain which hit northern England over Christmas.
