Hemel Town FC and Berkhamsted FC had their pre-season schedules disrupted on Tuesday as heavy rain stopped play.

Hemel were set to take on Harrow Borough in a friendly but torrential rain caused waterlogging at Vauxhall Road, while Berko’s clash with Bovingdon was called off due to a flooded goalmouth.

Hemel do not have to wait long to get back to action, however – travelling to Hornchurch on Thursday before visiting Leighton Town on Saturday.

Berko have a home tie against Hoddesdon Town in the Herts Charity Shield on Saturday.
