With the heavy rain and blustery winds battering Northern Ireland over the past few days thanks to Storm Gareth, it has seen more problems added to the Northern Ireland football schedule.

Already there have been three cancellations to fixtures in the Bluefin Sport Championship, while one game has fallen afoul of the weather in the Bluefin Sport Premier Intermediate.

While there have been no postponements in the Danske Bank Premiership as of yet, the weather is not expected to improve, so some games may be subject to late pitch inspections.

At this late stage of the season, all the postponements will do is add more pressure on the schedule as league organisers aim to get the season finished on time.

Here are all the fixtures that have been postponed today so far:

Bluefin Sport Championship

Ballyclare Comrades v Loughgall

Sign In

Dergview v Limavady United

Dundela v Portadown

Bluefin Sport Premier Intermediate

Sport & Leisure Swifts v Portstewart
