Horncastle Town’s Development side saw their hopes of making a flying start to the New Year dashed by the weather last Sunday.

Their Lincoln and District League Division Five clash against Newton Terriers was postponed because of a frozen pitch at The Wong.

It was a blow for Town who had high hopes of a resounding home win to kick start their challenge for a top four place.

Woodhall Spa United and Wragby FC also saw their scheduled Division One fixtures called off because of frostbound pitches.
