THE wet weather played havoc with the pre-Christmas football and rugby fixture schedules.

Forest Green Rovers and Gloucester City saw their games at Woking and at home to Guiseley respectively fall foul of waterlogged pitches.

Only one game beat the downpours in the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One South and West, with all of the Gloucestershire teams given a day off.

All of our Southern League teams are due to be in action on Boxing Day, for a card of traditional derby fixtures.

Shortwood United are scheduled to host Cirencester Town at Meadowbank (3pm) with Cinderford Town set to welcome Merthyr Town to the Causeway (3pm).

The traditional Lydbrook against Broadwell Amateurs fixture in the Northern Senior League will also take place at the Reed Sports Complex (11am).
