RIPLEY Town’s Midlands Regional Alliance division one home game against Allestree on Saturday has been called off due to a frozen Nottingham Road pitch, and the same fate has brought about the cancellation of Heanor Town’s East Midlands Counties League game at Ellistown.
It is a second successive postponement, and a second in a row at home, for Paul Lavender’s side who are now not due back in action until Saturday, February 18, when they are scheduled to take on Mickleover RBL at home in the semi-finals of the DCFA Divisional Cup (South). Kick-off is 1.15pm (weather permitting!).
All other games on Amber Valley Borough Council pitches have been called off as the cold snap extends into a second weekend.
