All Football Wide Bay fixtures postponed; fields unplayable

UPDATE: ALL Football Wide Bay fixtures have been postponed.

This weekend was set to be the first round of senior football, including the men's and women's Wide Bay League competitions.

Persistent rain throughout the week has seen all grounds ruled unplayable.

EARLIER: ONLY two games of Wide Bay League's opening round will go ahead if Hervey Bay's grounds pass inspection on Friday morning.

Football Bundaberg and Football Maryborough have already cancelled the weekend's fixtures due to their fields, predominantly Martens Oval and Federation Park Field respectively, being too wet.

Football Hervey Bay's Tavistock St fields have copped a drenching over the last week, though Football Wide Bay admin officer Peter Guest said a final decision will not be made until Friday morning.

Guest said he was reluctant to put a line through the weekend's fixtures too early, but said it was unlikely for Hervey Bay's fields to be ready.

United Warriors were scheduled to play Bargara and Doon Villa are set to host KSS Jets in the men's competition tomorrow while all other Wide Bay League games have been postponed.

The Warriors were due to host The Waves in the women's Wide Bay League.

July 8 shapes as the most likely date for the catch-up games.

The cancellations affect all junior and senior games.
