Football braves weather as only Yeovil v Crawley postponed

As Hurricane Arthur batters the South and West this week it is a testimony to grounds men every where that only one game from a fair sized programme has been lost.

Storm Angus, the first named storm of the season, has hit the UK with gusts of up to 84mph battering the coast and regions facing torrential rain and flooding.

Dozens of people have been evacuated after a river burst in Devon, while thousands of properties in the South West of the country are currently without power.

But, only Tuesday's League Two match between Yeovil Town and Crawley Town has been postponed after a pitch inspection at Huish Park.

Standing water on the pitch meant the game was called off shortly before 11:00 GMT, with further rain expected in the afternoon.

A Yeovil statement said: "Both Town manager Darren Way and Crawley boss Dermot Drummy were present and happy with the decision."
