Blank weekend for amateurs?

The prospects of any outdoor sport taking place in Calderdale this weekend look bleak after heavy overnight snow.

Footballers were again frustrated when programmes in the Haslem-Sheppard Halifax AFL and Bridge Balti Halifax Sunday League were postponed for the second week running.

The games involving all six Calderdale rugby union clubs, including the Heath versus Old Brodleians derby, were off, while the depth of the snow also meant that there appeared little prospect of amateur rugby league teams playing in the Pennine League.
