The weather has have seen ferry services to and from the Isle of Wight cancelled with Wightlink ferries between Portsmouth and Ryde and hovertravel services to Southsea both suspended.

Also falling victim to the weather was AFC Totton’s home game against Burnham which has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Testwood stadium.

However Saints home game against Chelsea won’t fall foul to the torrid conditions as no pitch inspection is planned ahead of the 3pm kickoff.

No New Year resolutions at the Echo then. Start the year as they mean to go on, providing us with things to either amuse or annoy depending on your mental attitude towards such minor/major mistakes. A Happy New Year to all and may your mistakes in the next year be no worse than the Echos.
