Snow and ice put paid to Calderdale’s amateur sporting programme over the weekend.

On Saturday no games were possible in the Halifax AFL or West Riding County Amateur Football League, while rugby league was also hit with all matches in the National Conference and Pennine Leagues falling victim to the conditions.

Five of Calderdale’s six rugby union sides had their games called off with the exception being Old Brods who suffered a 35-14 Yokshire One defeat at York.

Today’s Bridge Balti Halifax Sunday Football League programme was also wiped out.
