Wet week wreaks havoc on schedule

The Fraternity Club Cup final will now be played on Easter Monday after wet weather forced the postponement of the decider last weekend.

Defending champions Wollongong United were due to face Illawarra Premier League newcomers Corrimal Rangers until more than 150ml of rain drenched the region throughout last week.

With the IPL season set to begin this weekend, Football South Coast opted to move the match to Monday, April 17.

The final of the District League pool between Fernhill Foxes and newly-promoted Coniston will be moved to the same date.

United also had their FFA Cup match against The Ponds postponed, with Albion Park’s preliminary round game at home against Peakhurst United moved as well. Opening round fixtures for the Bert Bampton Cup will also be rescheduled to a later date as will the semi-finals for the Under-18 Cup competition.

Weather permitting, the new IPL and District League campaigns kick-off this Friday night.
