LOCAL sport was hit badly for the second successive weekend with another total white-out of fixtures on the Saturday.

Ripley Town and Heanor Town games were called off on the Friday, as were games on all Amber Valley Council pitches.

And on the Saturday, all Amber Valley RFC and Ripley Rhinos RFC fixtures were also postponed due to frozen pitches.

Hopefully normal service will be resumed this weekend as warmer temperatures both in the day and throughout the night look set to bring the necessary thaw this week.
