The wet weather has forced a football club to postpone its family fun day.

South Shields FC had hoped to celebrate its promotion to the Northern League Division One as champions by throwing open the club's grounds to visitors.

Fairground rides, food and drink stalls as well as live music had all been lined up for the event scheduled for today.

Visitors, to the grounds in Shaftesbury Avenue, were also going to be given the opportunity to meet the players, some who were going to be dropped into the tank of water,

However, the wet weather forced organisers to pull the plug on the fun day.

It has now been rescheduled for Sunday May 29.
