PUBLISHED: 13:23 09 October 2009 | UPDATED: 14:36 06 July 2010

ALL football matches that are due to take place on council-run pitches in Waveney this weekend have again been postponed.

Waveney District Council and operational partners Waveney Norse were forced to postpone games last weekend due to unusually hard surfaces, and this weekend the Notley's Lowestoft and District Saturday League and the Lowestoft Sunday League schedules are set to be hit again.

Waveney District Council and operational partners Waveney Norse were forced to postpone games last weekend due to unusually hard surfaces, and this weekend the Notley's Lowestoft and District Saturday League and the Lowestoft Sunday League schedules are set to be hit again.

A Waveney District Council spokesman said: “Despite some rain during the past seven days, pitch conditions have not improved.”

Last weekend, the conditions presented “a genuine risk to player safety,” as well as “longer-term damage to the pitches” themselves, and with not enough rain this week, it seems local amateur footballers will have to wait longer to play on the council-run pitches again.
