The snow and icy conditions meant there was a complete winter wipe-out of Boston Saturday Football League fixtures this week.

It has already been decided that The Willoughby Cup ties which should have been at the weekend will not be carried over to the following week.

Instead, they will now be accommodated on the date set aside for the the quarter-finals, February 16.

With no thaw on the horizon, the prospects of a return to local football this coming weekend doesn’t look very promising and could cause more headaches for the league’s fixture secretary.
