Holwell Sports Reserves prosper as First XI match postponed

Have your say

Holwell Sports had an unexpected weekend off when Saturday’s East Midlands Counties League match with Holbrook Sports was called off.

A pitch inspection found the Welby Road playing surface partially frozen with standing water in the middle.

The Reserves were in action and moved off the bottom of Senior League Division One with only their second win of the season.

Holwell, bolstered by a few First XI reinforcements including goalscorer Kieran Foster, won 2-0 at fifth-placed Barrow Town Reserves.
