PERSISTENT rain overnight has forced the postponement of many sports fixtures in Dorset today.
AFC Bournemouth's FA Cup tie against Burton Albion was called off 90 minutes before kick off as the pitch at The Goldsands Stadium failed a second pitch inspection.
Dorchester Town’s away trip to Hayes and Yeading has also been called off, along with Wimborne Town’s home game with Yate Town.
Games have also been called off in Southern Counties South rugby – with more heavy rain predicted today.
