Monday Sport: Football given the boot by the weather

FOOTBALL was kicked into touch by the wintry conditions on Sunday.

The Leek and District Sunday League gave it a go but eventually fell to the snow.

Two of the scheduled six games kicked off but both quickly came to a halt.

Breaks Athletic were leading 1-0 through a Andrew Findlow goal against Breaks FC, before the game was abandoned after 20 minutes.

The Staffs FA Sam Kimberley Trophy second round tie between Prince of Wales and Regent FC lasted five minutes less with no score.
