Bedford v Ipswich East Suffolk

(match abandoned)

For the second time in three weeks, Ipswich East Suffolk had their match abandoned and now face three games in the next fortnight as they battle to avoid relegation from Premier Division A of the Printwize East League.

After sleet and snow brought a halt to proceedings against Clacton, this time it was high winds which led to the game being called off after just 105 seconds.

Despite strategically placed sandbags, one of the goals was blown over by the wind and after a 20-minute break, it went again, leaving the umpires with no alternative but to abandon the match.
