Almost all sunk by a wet weekend

ANOTHER wet weekend saw every football game in Todmorden called off.

Only Woodhouse United in the Rochdale and District Sunday League played and that game was away from home.

For Todmorden Borough it was another devastating blow as they prepared to play at home for the first time since mid-October last year.

They have only managed a couple of games since then but each time have had to play away.

Many of the teams they play in the West Lancashire League Division Two are based around the Lake District so away fixtures tend to be long distance affairs.

When they play next weekend they will be on their travels again into Cumbria to take on Ulverston, who they beat easily at home early in the season.

“To be honest, I’m not bothered who we have to play,” said manager John Gilford.

“Now it’s just about playing. The last thing we want is to have a lot of midweek games late in the season,” he said.

Captain Daniel Skwarek will have to sit out the game at Ulverston as he still has to serve the one match ban picked up at Askham United three weeks ago.

He should have served the ban by sitting out last weekend’s schedule home fixture with Bolton County.
