Garstang Rugby Club were left frustrated last Saturday as both games were postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

The first team had been due to travel and play local rivals Thornton Cleveleys, whom they narrowly beat 20-16 in the home fixture back in October.

The Blues were also looking to extend their unbeaten run and they were at home to Leigh fourth team who they comfortably beat in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

A spokesperson for the club said: “With eight games remaining for the first XV and nine for the Blues there is no issue with fixture congestion yet although should we get many more postponements this could become an issue towards the end of the season.”

On Saturday February 15 the first team are at home to Burnley and the Blues are away against Fylde fifth team.

Both games kick off at 2.15pm.
