Wet weather won the day again as local sport took a hammering.

The Rocks’ Ryman premier game at home to Leiston was called off early on Saturday after a new wave of heavy rain left standing water in parts of the pitch - with much more rain still to come.

Many Sussex League football matches quickly went the same way - including Chichester City v Lancing, Selsey v Worthing United and Shoreham v Pagham in division one, Midhurst v Steyning in division two and Hurstpierpoint v Barnham in division three.

Officials at Fontwell will be willing the rain to stop soon. Much more of it could put their big Boxing Day fixture - when theyt hope to attract 8,000 through the gates - under threat.
