Today’s entire local football programme has, not surprisingly, fallen foul of the weather.

The Hawks’ Skrill South clash with Whitehawk was called off this morning after a pitch inspection at Westleigh Park deemed the surface unplayable.

And the same decision was reached at Sutton United, where Alex Pike’s Gosport Borough were due to play.

The Wessex League has also been hit heavily by the storm conditions suffered on the south coast in recent days.

All games involving local clubs have been postponed, leaving football fans across the area wondering what to do.

A rare trip to the rugby may have been an option, but it too has become a victim of the rain-soaked conditions.

Among those to be called off are Havant’s London one south game against Chobham and Portsmouth’s London two south west clash with Weybridge Vandals.

Sports lovers will be pleased to know, though, that the Hampshire Cross Country Championships in Eastleigh did get the go-ahead, with the action getting under way at 10.30am.
