Football season to be extended after fixtures fall foul of the weather again

Football fixtures scheduled to take place on Wirral Council-managed grass pitches this weekend have again had to be postponed due to the impact of recent weather.

With so many postponements of matches this winter, arrangements are being put in place to give teams and leagues the opportunity to try and fulfill outstanding fixtures.

These are the plans at they currently stand:-

  • Football season extended for league fixtures from 29 April to 13 May at all sites except for Levers / Thornton Hough
  • Levers will be extended one week up until 6 May. If Levers teams require pitches between 7 May and 13 May, contact the council's Parks and Countryside service to arrange an alternative pitch.
  • Thornton Hough is not available on 4-5 May but will be available on the other days up until 13 May.
  • For a further week from 14 May to 20 May, Arrowe Park and Plymyard will remain open for league fixtures only. To secure a pitch at Arrowe Park or Plymyard during this week, teams/ leagues must contact the council's Parks and Countryside service.
