Snow proves to be only winner


A fixture list that was much curtailed in the face of the League agreeing to requests for postponements in the face of the counter attraction of the Rams v Forest game showed its foresight when the snow fell to wipe out the only games scheduled, as well as the big match itself.

Hopefully the weather will relent sufficiently to allow next week’s programme to go ahead unhindered.

The League is sorry to report the loss of two of its teams. Riddings Rovers have folded and so have first-year side Tibshelf White Hart who have struggled from the outset and failed to pick up a single point.

Their records have been expunged and the division taken on a different look as a result.
