BRIDPORT'S Dorset Senior Cup semi-final at home to Hamworthy Recreation has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Heavy rainfall on Tuesday prompted an inspection of the St Mary's Field surface, which has already flooded twice this season.

And the Bees' turf was deemed unfit for play, meaning the cup tie has been re-arranged for Tuesday, February 20 (7.45pm).

On Saturday, the Bees reached the semi-finals of the Walter C Parson Cup courtesy of a 6-5 win on penalties against Newquay, after the sides drew 1-1 across 120 minutes.

However, in Ham Rec, they face the unenviable task of becoming the first team to beat the east Dorset side in normal time this season.

Kirk Grice’s men are unbeaten in 90 minutes during 29 matches in all competitions this season and sit top of Wessex League Division One by a point with three games in hand.

Their run extends to five FA Vase games, where they eventually lost 4-2 on penalties at Jersey Bulls.

Another shootout spelled their only other loss this season as Wessex Premier side Moneyfields, themselves a winning machine, won 8-7 on penalties in the Wessex League Cup.

However, Bridport have the distinction of beating Rec 4-1 in pre-season.

On Ham Rec, Bridport boss Chris Herbst has experience of playing against them in his DPL days as they dominated the division.

“I always keep an eye on them and they’re going really well, fair play to them,” he added.

“They’ve got Chris Long, the striker, scoring all the goals (34 in 24 games). I know they’re a good team.

“I’ve played against them a lot, I know they’ve changed a lot but they’re a good footballing side. It’s going to be a really tough game.

“But with our quality, I’d back us. At home as well we have a good record.”
