Southern League Division One South & West side Bridgwater Town have been hit with 29 match postponements this season.

Southern League Division One South & West side Bridgwater Town must play 18 league matches before April 27 after their 29th postponement of the season on Monday.

The club's fixture against Sholing was deemed unplayable due to a waterlogged pitch, meaning that they must now play three games a week over the next month.

"We now have to play three games every week. We've just got to struggle on and try as best we can. Over that period it had a massive impact on us because we went so long without playing a home game," secretary Roger Palmer told BBC Sport.

"We got into a bit of trouble with cash-flow problems. We were having very little money coming in, with no turnstile receipts, but our normal bills still had to be paid - in the region of £3,000.

"Thankfully, our sponsors have helped us out and brought forward payments to get us through the crisis."

Bridgwater are currently 20th in the table.
