Midweek games likely for clubs

Great Yarmouth and District Football League

The league programme was decimated last weekend by the deluge of rain over Friday night.

Due to the recent postponements since Christmas, clubs are advised that weekday fixtures at the end of April and early May are increasingly likely.

There was only one match, in Division One, where Yarmouth Peelers hosted Great Yarmouth International on the 3G pitch at Lynn Grove.

In a game that swung back and forth, it was the visitors who took the points with a hard-earned 4-3 win.

The win will give International great belief over the next couple weeks as they warm up for a League Cup semi-final next Saturday against MK United.

Peelers, however, were disappointed not to take at least a share of the spoils. The result leaves them just one point above the relegation zone.
