Three scheduled matches involving Huntingdonshire sides were postponed with the last of them not falling victim to heavy rain until less than an hour before it was due to kick off.
It was a Tuesday night washout for our non-league football teams.
That was a Hinchingbrooke Cup quarter-final clash involving Godmanchester Rovers at Peterborough Sports, whose pitch had passed a luncthime inspection but then succumbed to a later downpour.
St Ives Town’s trip to Barton Rovers in Southern League Division One (Central) was postponed following an early-afternoon assessment of the Bedfordshire side’s surface.
It came as a relief to boss Ricky Marheineke who had goalkeeper Tim Trebes and defender harry O’Malley laid low by illness. Work commitments would also have put midfielder Jared Cunniff’s involvement in doubt.
