JUST one game of rugby and one football match were possible locally on Saturday as the elements continued to take their toll on sport.
Sterling efforts by the Stratford Rugby Club ground staff ensured that their Midlands 1 West clash against Ludlow at Pearcecroft went ahead. All other games in the division were called off.
And they were nearly rewarded for their efforts when the Black-and-Whites led 17-14 in the dying stages of the game. But a last-gasp drop-goal broke Stratford hearts and gave the Shropshiremen a share of the spoils.
All other games involving local rugby clubs were postponed.
It was a similar story in the local football scene. Midland Alliance leaders Stratford Town’s game at Tividale was called off along with all other matches in the league. That game has been rearranged for Tuesday 5th February at 7.45pm.
In the Midland Combination, just one game survived the conditions. Division Two side FC Stratford once again benefited from the 3G surface at the DCS Stadium with a 4-1 victory over visiting Polesworth.
The entire Stratford Alliance programme was called off.
