HEAVY rain has once again obliterated the Island's football programme and the games for the three Sydenhams Wessex League sides.
Newport's match at St George's Park against New Milton in the Premier Division was the first to be postponed, after the pitch failed an inspection at 10.15am this morning (Saturday).
Soon after, it was confirmed that East Cowes Vics's trip to Brockenhurst was also off in Division 1, as was Cowes Sports's home match against Andover New Street.
Almost all of the other matches on the IW have also fallen foul to the weather. Updates will be on the fixtures page.
Newport and Vics both have midweek games coming up, with Newport away to new leaders Blackfield and Langley, and Vics going to Hythe and Dibden, both on Tuesday night.
Also on Tuesday, at Westwood Park, Cowes, is the semi-final of the IW County Press Challenge Cup between Northwood and Oakfiled. Kick-off is at 7.30pm.
