Holwell Sports were foiled by the weather for the second game running as their wait for competitive action continued.

Just four days after their County Cup semi-final was called off, Saturday’s league match at Belper United also fell foul of a waterlogged pitch.

The East Midlands Counties League match has been re-arranged for Tuesday, March 28 (kick-off 7.45pm).

Sports arranged a friendly with Ashby Ivanhoe at Welby Road on Wednesday evening to sharpen match fitness, having last played a competitive fixture on Tuesday, February 21 – the 7-1 win against Ellistown and Ibstock.

This coming Saturday, John Webster’s side are due to host a mid-table clash with Arnold Town who sit a place and two points below Holwell in 12th. Kick-off at Welby Road is 3pm.

Both of Holwell’s junior sides were also out of luck last weekend with the reserves’ Senior League home clash with FC Khalsa GTB, and the Development Squad’s North Leicestershire League fixture against Dunton and Broughton Reserves, both rained off.
