THE weather took its toll once again over the weekend with most matches in the region postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

Watchet Town had been looking to maintain the pressure on leaders Staplegrove when they were due to play away at Ashcott in Division One of the Uhlsport Somerset County Football League tomorrow on Saturday.

They will now look to turn the screw again when they host Combe St Nicholas this Saturday (3p.m. kick off).

The visitors have only won three league games to date this season and Watchet will be chomping at the bit to take the three points and hope that Staplegrove fail to do the business at mid-table Nailsea &Tickenham on Saturday.

Watchet have eight games left to play and must fancy their chances of returning to the Premier Division if they can maintain their form.

They have lost only four times this season.

Grove extended their lead at the top to seven points on Saturday but made hard work of their contest at bottom-of-the-table Castle Cary where theyeventually won 5-3.

Grove lead Watchet by seven points but they have played two more games.

Watchet’s neighbours Minehead host struggling Stockwood Green at The Rec this Saturday (3p.m. kick off), a side which has only two of their 20 matches this season.

This was meant to be the second game between the two sides in a week but Saturday’s game at the Fish Bowl fell foul of the weather.

In the premier division of the Taunton Saturday League, Minehead Reserves could go top of the table if they beat leaders Staplegrove reserves on their travels on Saturday.

Minehead trail Grove by a point with both sides having played 15 games.

There is a full programme of matches in the Somerset Sunday and Taunton Youth Leagues.
