FOOTBALL: All Boston League games off

Last weekend’s thaw came a day too late for The Boston Saturday League as football pitches across the county, including Woodhall Spa and Coningsby, were found to be covered in snow on Saturday morning forcing all games to be postponed.

It has been agreed to re-schedule The Sharman Burgess Sports Cup ties for March 9, which was the proposed date for the quarter finals.

The League will be hoping for normal service to be resumed this Saturday although it is expected that some playing surfaces will now be reaching saturation point.
