THIS afternoon's league and cup programme involving Isle of Wight teams has been decimated by the bad weather.

Despite the forecast suggesting the weather would clear this afternoon by kick-off times, most pitches were deemed unplayable — the majority of them waterlogged afte a night and morning of persistent heavy rainfall.

The biggest match to succumb to the conditions was Newport's match against Amesbury Town, at St George's Park.

The only matches being played, at it currently stands, are the Sydenhams Wessex Division 1 match between East Cowes Vics and Ringwood Town, the Hampshire Intermediate Cup third round match between Chamberlayne Athletic and Shanklin, the Hampshire Junior A Cup match between Kingsclere and Wootton and the Isle of Wight League Division 1 match between Osborne Coburg and Sandown.
