Kirklees have again been forced to cancel this weekend’s matches on Council managed pitches.

A statement from Kirklees said: “Unfortunately due to further rain on the already saturated pitches, the council have had to make the decision to call off football and rugby matches on their pitches again this weekend. The pitches are saturated following continued incidents of heavy rain over the last week, and with more rain forecast for the coming days they are expected to remain in an unplayable condition.

Affected leagues have been informed.

Safety inspections will continue to take place, on ground conditions and there will be extra effort made, to prepare the pitches for future fixtures.”
