THE weather has once again accounted for a high percentage of this weekend's scheduled non-league matches.

However, hopes are high that tomorrow's all-Suffolk FA Vase Fourth Round Proper tie between Needham Market and Kirkley & Pakefield will go ahead.

David Bugg, the Needham Market chairman, said today: “The pitch drained well overnight and the chances of the game going ahead are now 80-20, although there is a pitch inspection planned for 10am tomorrow.”

Maldon's match at Cheshunt in Ryman League Division One has been called off along with several matches in the Ridgeons League.
