PERSISTENT rain across South Cumbria has seen the majority of Saturday’s amateur football action wiped out.

Junior and senior games were affected, with only one West Lancs fixture in the area going ahead.

That was on the dependable Hawcoat Park pitch, where Burscough Richmond were the visitors. Furness Cavaliers were also able to play in Division Two, with their trip to Croston Sports surviving.

In the Furness Premier League, the Horne Cup match between Walney Island A and Britannia reserves was the only game across all competitions not be confirmed as being off.

The Barrow and District Junior Football League called off their Under-sevens Spring Trophy matches on the 3G pitch at Furness College given the high winds and heavy rain which have battered the area for the past two days.
