Game Off

Following a pitch inspection of Hamilton Park by the referee, Michael Honan [Ballina], at 2 p.m. on Sunday last, the ground was declared unplayable, so the Sligo V Westport Connacht Junior 1 League game was called off. The pitch had been deemed playable at 9 a.m. on Sunday by Connacht Branch referee, and Sligo Grounds’ Committee Chairman, Denis Connolly, but torrential driving rain from 11 a.m. onwards, led to a deterioration of the conditions.

As both sides are free on Sunday next, it is likely that the Connacht Branch, at its meeting to-morrow [Wed.], will re-fix the game for Hamilton Park on Sunday next.
