FA Cup hit by further postponement

Yet another FA Cup preliminary round tie has been postponed due to the state of a pitch following a month of bad weather.

Tomorrow's fixture between Douglas Royal and Rushen at Noble's Park has been called off by Douglas Corporation who say the playing surface is 'very soft'.

There is no game being played on Saturday at Rushen's Croit Lowey ground but, as yet, there is no word about switching the match to that venue.

This is the third time the tie has been postponed and the next round of the competition is due to be staged next weekend.
