Only a handful of local teams managed to complete their fixtures as the weather decimated the Saturday football.

UCL Premier Division trio Spalding United, Holbeach United and Deeping Rangers all saw their matches snowed off, while UCL Division One outfit Bourne Town also had their game postponed.

The biggest game to survive was Moulton Harrox’s 5-0 home win over Whittlesey Blue Star in the Peterborough Premier Division, which moved them up to second in the table.

In Peterborough Division One, Holbeach United Reserves drew 1-1 at Thorney, while Langtoft United earned a 2-2 draw at leaders King’s Lynn Town Reserves.

Down in Division Two, Deeping Rangers A managed a 2-2 draw at Leverington Sports Reserves, with Long Sutton Reserves seeing off Coates Athletic Reserves 2-1 in the third tier.

Two matches beat the weather in Division Five, as Pinchbeck United A drew 1-1 at home to Hampton Sports Reserves and Sutton Bridge United Reserves going down 3-1 at home to Gaultree.
