Yorkshire get stuffed by Lancs

A visit to Old Trafford to watch Yorkshire play Lancashire on Tuesday evening.
The weather was a little unpredictable, rain, sun and wind.

The sun did shine, but it also poured with rain.

Yorkshire were very, very bad. It was a bit like watching an under 14s match, with Yorkshire’s bowlers trying to knock the batsmen’s heads off on a slow wicket. The result was predictable, boundaries all round.
Old Trafford was relatively full, but then half the ground is rubble whilst it is redeveloped.
Quite a full house.

Shammy did not seem to be overly impressed by the action, but then he wasn’t on Wednesday either, come on Barcelona!

Manchester Metro, again

I have been in Manchester again this week. Three days working with Stagecoach helping to manage work on the city centre tram upgrade. The track removal seems to be going OK, but getting the new rails back in the deck seems to be a little steady.

Work continues on High Street

It is good to meet up with old colleagues from VolkerRail. I am sure we will have fun working together!
The rails are nearly complete around Victoria

It would also be great if the beautiful Manchester weather would stop getting us all wet. Being from the East of the country I was never really aware of just how much it rains in Manchester!
