DORSET SENIOR LEAGUE
STEVE Reynolds has likened his side’s Dorset Senior Trophy tie with Okeford United (1.30pm) to “a soap opera”.
Tomorrow will see the two teams endeavour to play the third round clash for the fifth time but once again the weather forecast makes grim reading.
Reynolds, whose side have played just four games since the beginning of November, said: “I think the adverse weather waits for us to have a game and then decides to come in.
“Last week Okeford’s pitch was under water so I doubt that will be any good and even if we try and switch it to Redlands again I cannot see it happening there either, as it is still soaked up there.
“It is just mad but all we can do is hope.”
If the tie does get the green light Upwey should have a full squad available with the addition of keeper Michael Barton, who is now free from suspension.
Weymouth Sports are also expecting their league clash at Kingston Lacy (2pm) to fall to the weather.
Joint-boss Chris Hicks said: “Last Saturday’s game was in doubt on the Tuesday before and I wouldn’t be surprised if it is not a similar situation now.
“I would be very surprised if it is on.”
On more of a positive note, the Dorset Senior League strugglers have managed to add two new signings to their squad in Rob Evans (ex-Dorchester Town Under-18s) and Ross Connor (ex-Chickerell United).
Portland United Reserves are also scheduled to be in action at Grove Corner tomorrow against Gillingham Town Reserves (2pm).
