It's a white-out.... again!

Created on 04/12/2010 @ 18:44


Sports fans have been scratching their heads this weekend trying to work out the last time when there were two consecutive weekends of total white-outs in November and December.
All football matches in the JT Hughes Montgomeryshire League, Spar Mid Wales League and Huws Gray Alliance were off, and, despite desperate efforts by some clubs and Saturday morning inspections, the weather was the winner. Local rugby and golf have also been hit.
Some clubs braved the elements, including Guilsfield who called in their players for a tough two-hour training session in the snow.
“It was hard but we had 18 lads down there training so it says a lot about the players' attitude at this club to be fair,” said manager Russell Cadwallader.
Up the road, The New Saints' all-weather pitch in Oswestry ensured their game went ahead in the Welsh Premier. It was worth it too as they beat Airbus 2-0 to remain second.
