Fermanagh game called off

Following an inspection the referee called the game off with about 20+ minutes to go before throw-in due to water logging on some areas of the field.

The field was inspected yesterday (Saturday) at 4pm and also this morning at 10:00 am and was declared fit for play. However persistent rain from 11am caused the water to log in a few key areas of the field and the referee made the final call in consultation with his officials and with team management members of both Leitrim and Fermanagh. The situation is regrettable but unavoidable.

Despite media reports of a definite re-fixture next weekend it is not know at this stage when the game will be re-scheduled however, next weekend is a free weekend for both teams and is considered a possibility.
