Due to the weather conditions over the past few days, the forecast and the unprecedented rain over the past few months, Western Suburbs Magpies have had to make the decision to postpone this Sunday’s games at Lidcombe Oval that would have included our NSW Knock-on Effect Cup vs North Sydney Bears, RMC vs Kaiviti Silktails & Wests Tigers Jersey Flegg vs Sydney Roosters.
We don’t make these decisions lightly, but need to consider player safety, longevity of our home ground and quality of performance on field.
Everyone was really looking forward to the day with much planning around the day already underway. Ultimately though, we had to make the right call.
We have multiple gala days scheduled for Lidcombe Oval through the year, and we are just hoping that Mother Nature is kind to us on these occasions.
Sunday’s matches will still need to be played, so keep an eye out for the re-scheduled date.
We hope to have not inconvenienced anyone, but unfortunately we can’t control the current weather situation and are sure we will make it up soon.
We'll be back at Lidcombe on April 9th with our Ron Massey Cup Magpies however, so do stay tuned for more news!
