THERE may be a weather warning in place as Storm Alex hits the Isle of Wight, but it has done little to stop football maatches going ahead this afternoon (Saturday).

So far, only one match has been called off — Ventnor Reserves v Osborne Coburg Reserves at Watcombe Bottom.

The Cowes Sports game against Tadley Calleva at Westwood Park. The starting line-up will include Callum Chase, the victim of racist abuse at Fleet Town last Saturday.

Callum, who will be wearing the captain's armband with John McKie still out injured, said: "Hopefully, we will get the three points today and transfer our cup form into the league."

Also, East Cowes Vics will be looking to bounce back after their 3-0 derby loss to Newport in mid-week.

They face Andover Town at Beatrice Avenue.

Newport, who moved up to fifth place with their win over Vics, will be looking for a third straight victory in the space of seven days when they face Ringwood Town.

In Division of the Island League, Whitecroft and Barton Sports, with a 100 per cent win record so far, have a tricky game away at Bembridge, who won their opening two home games this season.

Meanwhile, Shanklin will be wanting to continue their perfect winning start when they face Ventnor, who have got off to a poor start.

Unbeaten Sandown host Cowes Sports at The Fairway — a game that promises goals galore after the Yachtsmen beat Carisbrooke United 14-0 last weekend.
