Wallasey & District Sunday Football League: Frozen out
1:14pm Monday 21st January 2013 in Sport
NO fixtures took place due to the winter wonderland of snow and ice, with the local councils closing all grounds.
This has resulted in many cup competitions suffering from the postponements, plus the ever increasing backlog of league fixtures for many teams, especially those who are having a successful season.
Therefore, all clubs are advised that the League Management Committee are looking at the possibility of cancelling some cup competitions, as the number of Sundays decreases and reduces the possibility of all scheduled fixtures being played as required.
Indeed some teams have over 20 fixtures yet to play and come February there will only be 13 available Sundays left in the current football calendar for games to be played.
Obviously, there will be mid-week dates at our disposal, but as we all know, this produces problems for all teams.
This due to their players also competing in Saturday leagues, who also need to get games played and complaints of too many game’s becomes a distinct possibility?
However, every effort will be made to complete all competitions scheduled for the season and the LMC hope that clubs understand the logistical nightmare that exists when fixtures are being scheduled, but then constantly postponed due to the bad weather during the winter months.
It is also now hoped that teams realise why so many games are scheduled to be played in the early months of the season?
On a football note it must be mentioned that only Millhouse are undefeated in the premier division and the same can be said of Rockpark FC who lead division two by a ten point margin.
Also without defeat and having won all their league fixtures, are Christleton Youth in the youth division, but with 18 league games to play they look to have a heavy schedule ahead of them to retain this record.
All clubs are reminded yet again that they must confirm fixtures with their opponents and match officials and if games are not played for whatever reason, they must inform the league secretary with immediate effect.
Best wishes go to all our league teams for the remainder of the season and for those still involved in Cheshire FA or Wirral FA competitions, we send our congratulations and hope they can achieve success outside of the league campaign and bring even more trophies to their resident league.
