SPALDING RFC: Town doubtful clash will be on

Have your say

Spalding RFC v Coalville RFC (Saturday, 2.15pm): TOWN chairman Geof Nichols has warned fans that this Midlands One East clash is extremely doubtful.

With snow still on the Memorial Field surface on Wednesday, it is considered highly likely that Spalding and Coalville will see their basement battle called off for the second week in succession.

Nichols hasn’t given up hope completely – but admits Town have room in their schedule should the big freeze claim another victim.

He said: “There’s a small chance it could be on, but the snow hasn’t cleared yet.

“I’d have to say it’s extremely doubtful that any local fixtures will go ahead.

“But in our case we have a couple of free weekends to fill this season – so it could be worse.”
