Moneyfields' waterlogged Dover Road pitch

Fareham Town have now moved their Wessex League premier division game against Team Solent at Cams Alders to Saturday after both teams found themselves with a spare date.

The Reds were due to visit Moneyfields but the Dover Road club are now in FA Vase action against Bristol Manor Farm on Saturday.

The winners of the tie have been drawn away against Sunderland RCA or Sleaford in the last 16.

Sunderland RCA play in the EBAC Northern League division one, while Seaford Town are in the Chromasport United Counties League premier division.

Both clubs, like Moneys, ply their trade at step five in the non-league pyramid.

Dave Carter’s side will face a massive challenge to overcome Bristol Manor Farm and get through, though.

The Bristol side currently head the Western League premier division by seven points with just three defeats from 22 games.

In the last round, Moneys beat Hellenic League side Brimscombe & Thrupp after a replay.

Carter’s men were forced to postpone their Russell Cotes Cup game against Otterbourne this evening because their Dover Road pitch was waterlogged.

Horndean’s Hampshire Senior Cup tie against Totton & Eling at Five Heads Park also fell victim to the weather.

‘The game was doubtful from very early on because our pitch was very heavy and soft all over,’ said Deans manager Craig Pearce.
