After landing the aircraft began to drift towards the left shoulder of the runway. The pilot attempted to correct the drift with braking and the use of opposite rudder but the drift increased and the aircraft departed the side of the runway and came to rest in a shallow ditch some distance from the runway. There were no injuries. The pilot attributed the accident to a combination of a damp runway surface and using excessive braking during the early stages of the drift.
