Despite a virtual wipe-out of fixtures for three weeks Costcutter League officials say the situation is under control and there is unlikely to be a pile-up towards the end of the season.

Last weekend 17 league and cup games were postponed but it appears that there is no need for panic.

League secretary Geraint Davies pointed out that clubs in the three divisions had played two thirds of their fixtures with some having only a handful of games remaining.

Giving an assurance that there was no need for concern Mr Davies said “We had a dry autumn and November. In the past we have had to re-arrange games in the Emrys Morgan Cup during this period but everything has run smoothly this season.

“We are also down to the last eight in the Easter Monday League Cup and ties are going ahead this Saturday.

“With the weather likely to improve there are no problems and we are in control of the situation,” he said.
