What’s the rest of the country’s fixtures looking like . Up here in the NE there’s not been many games at all from step 5 down . Going to be a long season .

Similar in the SSML/Beds County area near me. Not sure why so many teams had a free Tuesday evening in August/September.

Unusually the NE seems to have been wetter than the NW. Dunston have played only 8 league games & are still in the league cup. The NCEL too have had more games off than on recently as well as a high number of floodlight failures. Think Wessex & SCFL area has been particularly hard hit too.

I'd expect postponements even at Step 1 soon if it keeps raining - Barnet's pitch is in the worst state ever and every home game seems to be played in pouring rain.

Increase step 2 to 24 teams for a 46 game season.
Brilliant.

West Bridgford in the EMCL have only played two home league games. Just 16 more to fit in, at a ground that seems to suffer from the weather.

Hampshire League Secretary said at last meeting that this season has been the worst ever for PPments for weather and Cup re-arrangements up to this stage of the season.

It's not an issue at that level.. the only PPs have been for cup game and trophy games

Altrincham have already had two weather related home postponements, as well as others caused by the ongoing cup run.

And three postponements on a single Saturday caused by a suicide on the railway. If clubs want to travel to away games by train then they should allow at least a five hour gap (suicides usually take around three hours for the trains to get back to normal)

There is only so much contingency that can be factored into away travel. If a match is postponed due to travel delays resulting from suicide or major accident (be it road or train) so be it. Football pales into insignificance at this point.

It's been grim down in Devon and Cornwall, however, the fixtures and tables show a pretty healthy return. But that's down to good planning by a certain league sec. Some teams are halfway, even after a couple of near or total wipeouts. Memories of that nightmare winter a couple of years ago show a lot of foresight.

However, go down into the St Pirans and it's a different story. St Dennis reserves are on 7 played.

Go lower in the Duchy League Division 1 and Lanivet Inn have played... 1

Billericay have already had three postponements, largely because of the damage caused to the pitch by the vandals, which brought about the first of those postponements. It was a big shock their rescheduled FA Trophy game went ahead on Tuesday, and from the pictures seen, with standing water in places and a penalty area barely recognisable from the mud, the referee must have been from a different era. It seems that may have done for their game yesterday by playing in midweek. There'll be more games called off there no doubt, as the damage from the joyriders remains evident, and probably will now until the end of the season, despite the work of the groundstaff from a local golf course doing their best to repair it.

Billeticsy's pitch issues long predate the vandalism. It has for many years bring a poorly draining pitch that often resembles a mudbath especially at the end you enter the ground

It's on the edge of a valley (by Essex standards anyway) with a high water table, but the work done to it eighteen months ago included new drainage, and although last season the weather was much kinder, they still didn't have a single postponement at home.

Since 5th Oct Chessington (and tenants Westside) have managed just three matches between them on the misnamed Chalky Lane
