ALL games scheduled for Ipswich Borough Council pitches this weekend have been postponed because of wet conditions.
This is the third week running they have called a halt.
Lenny Godbold from Bramford Road Old Boys, who play at Whitton Sports Centre, feels the council is being unnecessarily cautious.
“How can the council call off games on Wednesday again, when last week the weekend saw brilliant sunshine?” said Godbold.
“We are in a position to challenge for Division Two honours and feel it is a disadvantage to keep having games called off.
