Sedge face fixture chaos

Sedge face fixture chaos

LIVERSEDGE FC face a hectic fixture schedule in the coming months after two more games were postponed last week.

Storm Emma and the Beast from the East prevented Sedge’s game at Bottesford Town going ahead before their game away at Garforth Town was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. 

Liversedge now have to play at least 18 games by April 28 – 17 in the league and one cup fixture. 

This coming week Sedge are expected to play three games in seven days with a total of nine fixtures planned for the rest of March. 

To put that into perspective, Kirklees neighbours Huddersfield Town will only play three games before April. 

“We have 18 games to play in seven weeks and it doesn’t add up really,” said manager Jonathan Rimmington.

“It’s absolutely horrendous but I don’t know what can be done. 

“We don’t have a reserve side or an Under-19s or Under-21s, lads work and we will have lads who will get injured and I don’t know where to go with it.

“The league say it has to be finished by the last day of April but our players will end up playing Saturday, Monday, Wednesday and Saturday again.”

Liversedge host Bridlington Town tomorrow (3pm), they then travel to Bottesford Town on Monday (7.45pm) before a trip to Athersley Recreation on Thursday (7.45pm).
