Despite the weather again decimating the Costcutter Football League programme officials say there is no likelihood of a fixture pile-up towards the end of the season.
In Division One champions New Quay have played only nine of 22 games and others, including St Dogmaels, have a dozen league games outstanding in addition to cup commitments.
But there is no need for panic according to League Secretary Geraint Davies who said he and his colleagues were monitoring the situation.
“Unless there is a big freeze over the next month or so we should be alright. Seven clubs have played 14 games and it is intended to hold the League Cup semi-finals under lights in midweek. The Emrys Morgan Cup and Cwpan Coffa Dai Dynamo Davies semis will also be in midweek,” he said.
Going on to say that the Second Division presented a bit of a problem with St. David’s University College having played only four of 24 games, he said “The students will be playing on Saturday and Sunday every weekend for the next six to eight weeks.
“We are on top of things and if clubs cooperate we will finish in good time by the middle of May,” he said.
