Cheddar’s match against Bishops Lydeard was called off due to the adverse weather conditions.

With most of the county under several inches of snow at the weekend, Cheddar’s scheduled match against Bishops Lydeard on Saturday stood no chance of going ahead.

It has now been re-arranged for April 19, meaning that the Cheesemen have no less than five consecutive games at their Bowdens Park ground at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Cheddar are to scheduled to play at home to Devizes Town on Saturday before starting a hectic schedule of four successive away games, starting at Wincanton Town (Tuesday) before embarking on three further away trips to Calne (March 17), a midweek trip to Devizes (March 20) and Chard (March 24), before two successive home Easter games on Good Friday and Easter Monday against local rivals Bishop Sutton and title chasers Westbury United.

Cheddar manager Shaun Potter said: “It has been a frustrating time for us, very stop start for the last few months, it’s difficult to gain any momentum when you play one game every few weeks.

“We have a busy last couple of months coming up in terms of fixtures, but I think that will suit us as a team. The boys need to refocus and have a big push from now until the end of the season.”
