THREE of Dorset's biggest clubs have fallen foul of this week's inclement weather.

Following the torrential downpours of Storm Ciarán and subsequent heavy rainfall into the weekend, Dorchester Town, Portland United and Bridport all have no games.

However, Weymouth's meeting with Welling United in the Vanarama National League South remains on at the Bob Lucas Stadium, notoriously a fast-draining pitch.

Dorchester were due to visit Hanwell Town in the Pitching In Southern League Premier South but their match was called off on Friday evening.

Portland United had been primed for a second meeting this week with AFC Portchester, following their 3-0 Wessex League Cup loss in midweek.

However, the Portchy pitch failed an inspection this morning due to waterlogging and their league fixture will now be rearranged.

Bridport's St Mary's Field was severely hit by Storm Ciarán with large parts of the playing surface under water.

Their South West Peninsula League Premier East match with Cullompton Rangers will now be rescheduled.

No dates for fulfilment of the three fixtures have been finalised.

All but two matches involving Dorset Premier League clubs have been postponed.

Dorchester Sports' home tie with Puddletown, plus Portland United Reserves' encounter with Wimborne Town Reserves in the Dorset Senior Trophy both remain on.

Elsewhere, the DPL now only has 16 teams after the withdrawal of Shaftesbury Town Reserves.

The Rockies' results have been expunged, meaning Bridport Reserves are up to 14th.
