Wet weather hits New Year's Day football

New Year’s Day proved to be a washout for the local Ryman League teams.

Witham Town’s Ryman League division one north match against visiting Barkingside was called off on Tuesday but the prospects for the other games appeared to be good.

However, heavy overnight rain on New Year’s Eve put paid to the other matches.

The local derby between Burnham Ramblers and Maldon and Tiptree at Leslie Field fell foul of the weather following a pitch inspection yesterday morning.

The visit of Soham Town Rangers to Heybridge Swifts’ Scraley Road ground also was postponed due to a pitch inspection.
