A host of matches across Cumbria have been postponed this weekend.

Despite asking for help from supporters to maintain the pitch ahead of the game, Workington Reds' home Evo-Stik Northern Premier League clash against South Shields fell victim to the weather, being postponed after a morning pitch inspection.

At the D Marks Carpet Stadium, Carlisle City's Hallmark Security League First Division Cup semi-final first leg against Sandbach United was also called off.

On their Twitter account, the Sky Blues added that they expect the first-leg tie now to take place next Saturday - initially when the second leg should have been played - but this is yet to be confirmed.

Penrith's AFC trip to Wigton Harriers for their Cumberland Cup semi-final tie was also called off.

"Today's Cumberland Cup semi-final against Wigton Harriers has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch," a Bonny Blues club statement read.

The other semi-final tie, between Carlisle United and Bransty Rangers, is currently due to take place at Penrith's Frenchfield Park this Tuesday evening.

Across the Border, Gretna 2008's home game against Vale of Leithen was also postponed after their pitch failed to pass a morning pitch inspection.
