Matches hit by weather

Have your say

IT’S going to be a blank weekend for lots of local footballers following this week’s rain.

All council parks pitches and playing fields etcetera in Sheffield have been ruled unfit due to being waterlogged and there will be no matches today or tomorrow.

Officials say the weather has also prevented pitch marking taking place

Meanwhile, the County Senior League will be hoping their League Cup quarter-finals go-ahead this afternoon.

Top tie is the meeting of the only Premier Division sides remaining, Wombwell Main entertaining leaders Penistone Church. The other ties are Aqua Force Barnsley v Frecheville, Thorpe Hesley v Bramley Sunnyside and Wickersley v Athersley Rec Res.

Kick-off 1.30pm, with extra time and penalties if needed.
