Only delayed: Crusaders ace Declan Caddell and Ballymena United’s Jonny Addis set to clash at Seaview today

A season shaped by the Covid-19 pandemic and winter weather had another casualty last night when the Ballymena United v Crusaders Premiership clash at the Showgrounds was called off due to persistent rain - but at least there is a bright outlook for all clubs on the financial front.

The stop-start campaign of matches played without supporters and Covid-19 testing has been tough on everyone.

All clubs are finding the challenge of fulfilling a 38-game season a daunting one but there's an understandable desire to play as many games as possible.
