FOOTBALL: Lights out at Abbey Lawn, Deeping draw

Have your say

A FLOODLIGHT failure saw Tuesday night’s Lincs FA Senior Trophy semi-final between Bourne Town and Holbeach United abandoned after 35 minutes, while Deeping Rangers drew 1-1 against St Ives Town.

In the biggest game held at the Abbey Lawn in years, the Wakes were holding their own against the Tigers until the lights went out and the players were forced off.

After a lengthy delay the game was written off by the officials – and rearranged for next Wednesday night.

Meanwhile, Josh Moreman earned Rangers a point at icy Outgang Road. Conor Washington’s early strike fired the Saints ahead, but on-song Moreman soon replied – and that’s how it stayed.
