For the second week running only one game survived the weather in The Bentley Bar North West Saturday Morning League as a deluge of rain swept across the city at the weekend.

The SML Match Secretary has decided that all the games that were to be played at the weekend will go ahead this coming weekend as he attempts to get the two Gilfillan Cup semi-finals played and if they are cancelled again next week they may have to be played on a 3G surface if the final is to be played on St. Stephen’s Day.

HML have withdrawn from The League and the amended Premier League table has been updated.
