Wet weather hits weekend football fixtures

THE WET weather has decimated the afternoon’s High Peak football fixtures.

Buxton FC versus Hednesford Town and New Mills AFC versus Wakefield in the Evo-Stik League are both postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

Glossop North End’s home fixture against Colne was due to go ahead at Surrey Street, but persistent rain led to it being called off an hour before kick-off.

Matches in the Hope Valley League, Cheshire League and Manchester League are also subject to postponement.
