FREEZING temperatures and snow decimated the local sporting programme at the weekend.

Stratford Town were yet again thwarted by the weather as Saturday’s Midland Alliance clash against Boldmere St Michaels was postponed due to a frozen pitch.

It was a similar story on Tuesday night when the scheduled game against Ellesmere Rangers also fell victim to the weather.

Town are due to visit Tipton Town this Saturday (3pm) before playing host to Tividale at the DCS Stadium on Tuesday (7.45pm).

Meanwhile, the Polymac Services League Cup quarter-final clash at Studley, which was postponed last Tuesday, has been rearranged at the Beehive on Tuesday, February 28.

Meanwhile, Stratford RFC’s hopes of pulling further away from the Midlands One West relegation zone were hampered when their scheduled game at home to fourth placed Worcester Wanderers was called off.

The two sides will hoping the weather relents as they attempt to try again at Pearcecroft this Saturday (2.15pm).

Claverdon were also left kicking their heels after the scheduled trip to Midland Four West (South) high-flyers Old Wheatleyans was also postponed on Saturday.

Claverdon are due to entertain Harborne in a friendly fixture this Saturday (2.15pm).
