GAME ON! Top regional teams winning rain game...

Of course there will be many clubs and teams trying to beat the inclement weather conditions and play, highlighting the advantage of the introduction of artificial pitches.

Hockey teams are fortunate enough to be on the ball in this area, so check our fixtures guide for games going ahead in South Wales and the West of England.

Our rugby fixtures section is proving popular with all who follow the oval ball and something we will be looking to expand in the New Year.

While we continue to do our utmost to promote non-League football from Monday through to Friday we encourage you to rely on excellent regional sports services – including official club websites - to provide weekend coverage of the big football matches and stories.
