Rain wreaks havoc with local football schedule

The weekend's football action has fallen foul of the wet weather this week

The downpours during the week have resulted in all of the scheduled Saturday and Sunday League fixtures being called off.

Every single fixture in both the Scarborough News Saturday and Sunday Leagues have had to be called off after the area's pitches were left waterlogged by the week's wet weather.

With a host of cup fixtures likely to take priority if pitches dry out by next weekend, a backlog of league games could end up having to be played on evenings later in the season.
