Sunday Sport: Snow decimates fixture programme

THE atrocious weather denied Abbotsholme Ladies 1sts a chance to wrap up the Division Four title in their first season in the Staffordshire Women’s Hockey League.

A victory away to Leek 4ths today would have made it impossible for them to surrender top spot because of their vastly superior goal difference.

All three scheduled league fixtures today were postponed because of snow-bound pitches.

Abbotsholme’s Fourth Division rivals Lichfield 7ths and Lichfield 6ths saw their ‘in-club’ clash called off, as did Tamworth 3rds home game against Keele University 1sts in Division Three.

It’s been a similar story on the local football scene.
