FOOTBALL: Boxing Day inspection for derby clash

Have your say

A decision on the status of the ‘South Holland clasico’ between Holbeach United and Spalding United on Boxing Day wll not be made until 11am on Wednesday.

Heavy rain over the past few days has left Carter’s Park covered in puddles – and with the shocking weather expected to continue over the festive period, it looks increasingly likely that the much-anticipated derby clash will be postponed.

UCL Premier Division rivals St Ives Town have already called off their Boxing Day match with Huntingdon Town, but a Holbeach official has told the Lincolnshire Free Press that they’ll wait until the morning of the game to make a decision.
