Bradford district sport hit by bad weather again
A second successive blank weekend looks on the cards, with news that all matches on Bradford, Leeds and Kirklees Council-owned pitches have been cancelled.
This will also include all scheduled fixtures on school pitches.
The decision has been taken because of the current wintry conditions, which may soon be replaced by waterlogging when the snow and ice thaws.
Bradford Council strategic director for environment and sport Ian Bairstow said: “We will contact as many league secretaries as possible to let them know about the situation.”
The prospect of much action on privately-owned grounds remains remote, meaning the West Riding County Amateur League football programme is set to be decimated.
If Campion reserves’ West Riding County FA Challenge Trophy game against Oakworth Recreation reserves is not played it will be scheduled for a third attempt on Saturday, February 2, with the winners hosting Golcar United’s reserves on the following Saturday.
Tomorrow’s postponed Premier and Division One Cup quarter-finals will be rearranged for later in February or early March.
The Bradford Sunday Alliance League football programme has already been completely called off, while there is little hope of rugby action in the Pennine League.
