Find out which non-league games are on and which are off in the Southern League, Isthmian League and Thurlow Nunn League as Storm Dennis threatens




The threat of severe weather conditions forecast from Storm Dennis has forced most clubs to postpone this afternoon's matches, with just a few fixtures going ahead.

Needham Market's visit from Lowestoft Town in the BetVictor Southern Premier Central (3pm) is due to go ahead, with the Suffolk derby rivals keen to play.

Lowestoft dumped Needham out of the FA Cup via a 4-0 thrashing in September before the Marketmen got revenge with a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture of the league on October 19.

Needham have since seen a change of manager, with incoming Kevin Horlock fresh off the back of his first victory in charge.

Both Bury Town and AFC Sudbury's fixtures are also still set to go ahead this afternoon in the BetVictor Isthmian League North.

Bury Town are away to Grays Athletic (3pm), with the club tweeting: "TODAY: The latest news we have is that today’s game at @GraysAthleticFC goes ahead as planned, any decision on whether it is postponed due to safety reasons will be made by the match referee."

AFC Sudbury have a tough visitor in third-placed Aveley at The MEL Group Stadium this afternoon, with the game set to go ahead as well.

It was due to be their second meeting in a week but Storm Ciara already saw last Monday's game rescheduled.

In the First Division North, Lakenheath's visit from King's Lynn Town Reserves is also still on.

Walsham-le-Willows, meanwhile, made a decision at midday to postpone their home game against Swaffham Town in the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division.

The home team were keen to play, as they look to overturn a five-match losing streak, with the news on Friday of a big boost in the return of defender-turned-forward Tom Debenham.
