Rugby sides to try again

MATLOCK RFC and Bakewell Mannerians will hope for better luck with the weather at the weekend after last Saturday’s games were cancelled due to the cold snap.

Matlock were due to entertain Kettering on Saturday before the chilly conditions put paid to that, and now look forward to this Saturday when they travel to Lincolnshire to take on Spalding in the Midlands League One East.

The seconds are away to Mansfield and the thirds travel to Notts Gems.

Mannerians’ local derby at home to Ashbourne had to be called off but another Midlands Two East (North) game is planned for this Saturday against visiting Belgrave.
