Steeton saw their relegation six-point at Garstang postponed on Saturday morning.

Heavy rain for much of the week in the Lancashire town had left the game in doubt, but there were hopes of it going ahead until a few hours before kick off.

A pitch inspection was pencilled in for 10:30am on the day of the match and sadly, further overnight rain left the pitch in an unplayable condition, meaning the game was called off with a waterlogged pitch.

It means Steeton remain four points above the drop zone in the North West Counties Football League First Division North, while Garstang are above the dotted line on goal difference only from Shelley.

Perhaps crucially, Steeton have only played 24 games so far, compared to Garstang's 26 and third-bottom Shelley's 25.
