Frozen pitch leads to late cancellation of Burntwood RUFC fixture

Burntwood RUFC’s trip to Eccleshall proved fruitless as the game was called off 45 minutes prior to the kick off, despite both sides completing their pre-match warm-ups.

The home skipper felt the pitch was too hard to play on and that was it.

Burntwood now find themselves coming to the end of January and they are still to complete half their league programme.

Already there are four league games to re-arrange and a Staffs Intermediate cup semi-final to re-schedule and the winter weather continues to threaten.

The 3rd team outing at home to Wednesbury 2nds also fell victim to a frozen pitch.

This Saturday (January 29), weather permitting, Burntwood host Wednesbury (league) and the 2nds welcome Trentham 2nds to The Sportsway. The 3rds are TBA. All kick offs are 2.15 pm.
