Man City among clubs facing fixture headache after postponed West Ham game

:Headline: Man City among clubs facing fixture headache after postponed West Ham game:
Winds up to 85mph battered the UK and Ireland on Sunday.

Leading sport administrators must strive to rearrange a slew of fixtures which were postponed on Sunday due to Storm Ciara.

Winds up to 85mph battered the UK and Ireland, leading to football, horse racing, rugby union and rugby league fixtures being scrapped, and now the race is on to rejig schedules as quickly as possible.

Manchester City’s Premier League clash with West Ham, Sunday’s two Super League games between Huddersfield and Leeds, and Wakefield and Catalans Dragons, and the entire Women’s Super League programme all fell foul of the weather.

Race meetings at Exeter, Southwell and Punchestown were all abandoned, and Tuesday’s meetings at Ayr and Lingfield have also been called off because of waterlogged tracks.

Ayr’s clark of the course, Graeme Anderson, said: “We had 16 millimetres of rain overnight, which makes it 51mm since 5pm on Saturday. We have a further 10-15mm forecast, along with 50 miles per hour winds, so it isn’t going to improve.”

There was good news from Plumpton, though, with Monday’s card getting the go-ahead after passing an inspection.

Super League side Wakefield are even bidding to stage their clash with Catalans Dragons on Monday night, but will monitor conditions before making a decision.

Wakefield chief executive Michael Carter tweeted: “Just to bring everybody up to date, because Catalans are in the country and to avoid fixture congestion, we are looking at tomorrow evening but at this stage it is still extremely doubtful.”

Scotland Women’s Six Nations clash with England in Glasgow was postponed on Sunday, and the Scottish Rugby Union swiftly announced the encounter had been rescheduled for Monday afternoon in Edinburgh behind closed doors.

An SRU statement read: “Weather conditions in Edinburgh on Monday will not be as severe as Glasgow but still forecast as challenging so the game will not be open to the public or have tickets on sale.”

Non-league Wisbech Town, meanwhile, have potentially been left with a serious long-term problem after a stand at their Fenland Stadium collapsed due to Storm Ciara. The total cost of repairs at the Cambridgeshire side’s ground could be more than £20,000, according to the club secretary.
