Football and rugby

The Southern Combination Football League continues to be disrupted by the wet weather and recent storms to sweep the country.

 

A total of 355 games had been postponed due to waterlogged pitches after last weekend’s most recent spate of washouts.

 

Selsey were again left gameless as their division one trip to Shoreham’s Middle Road was postponed last Saturday.

 

The Blues do not have a fixture tomorrow.

 

In division two, Bosham were rained off at Rottingdean Village.

 

They try again tomorrow when they host Angmering Village (2pm KO).

 

Even the rugby season has fallen foul of the weather, with Bognor’s 1st XV fixture called off last weekend (pictured below).

 

In other rugby news, England and Harlequins’ Jess Breach, from Chichester, sustained an ankle injury in training this week and will miss the remainder of the Women’s Six Nations tournament.

 

Coach Simon Middleton said: “We are really disappointed and upset to lose Jess for our final two games. She’s an integral player for us and we all wish her a speedy recovery.
