Waterlogged pitches resulted in both Beccles and Bungay having inactive Saturdays in the Anglian Combination Division One.
Following a day and a half of rain, it was no surprise that Beccles’ game against North Walsham was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, as was the case with many other Waveney Valley-based teams.
Bungay Town’s home game against Scole United was also called off due to the unplayable conditions.
Tomorrow Bungay visit fellow promotion contenders Aylsham Wanderers, with a 2.30pm kick-off.
Also tomorrow, Beccles first team entertain Division One leaders, Bradenham Wanderers, who beat the Wherrymen 4-1 in the earlier away fixture. Kick-off is at 2.30pm.

A reminder that neither of the Beccles Town sides have a home tie on March 18 as College Meadow plays host to a Suffolk Junior Cup semi-final between Benhall St Mary and Oulton Broad, kick-off at 2.15pm.
With both Beccles and Bungay out of action, there were only four games played in the section.
Aylsham missed out on the chance to join Bradenham at the top of the standings when they were soundly beaten at in-form Attleborough 3-0.
Hellesdon improved their placing with a 3-0 win over Loddon (see inside for a match report) while Mundford won 4-3 at Dersingham Rovers and Sheringham had a 3-0 win at Holt.
It means Bradenham are clear at the with 49 points with Hellesdon, Aylsham and Beccles then separated by just one point.
That quartet are nine points clear of Bungay who have games in hand on those teams above them.
Beaten sides Holt and Dersingham remain at the foot of the table, some pointa drift of Hindringham, Scole and Mundford, the latter two sides also having games in hand over their main rivals.
