WEEKEND SPORT UPDATE: Snow wipes out football and rugby games

Have your say

The freezing conditions and snow across the country have put paid to all of the weekend’s outdoor sport.

In football, Holbeach United’s UCL Premier Division top of the table clash with St Ives Town was called off on Friday afternoon, as was Deeping Rangers’ trip to Huntingdon Town.

Bourne Town’s home date with Northampton Spencer is another to have perished, with the league giving teams special dispensation to call off matches 24 hours earlier than usually permitted.

Spalding United’s FA Vase clash at Ely City was also postponed after a pitch inspection undertaken later on Friday afternoon, with the duo set to try again this Saturday.

In rugby, Spalding RFC’s game at Market Rasen and Louth is also snowed off – as are matches involving Deepings and Bourne.

All of the Peterborough and District League, Boston and District League and Spalding Sunday League football is also off, as is the entire junior Peterborough League schedule.
