(match abandoned after 17 minutes)

HAIL and snow which completely covered the Tuddenham Road pitch did Ipswich East Suffolk no favours.

Although Clacton had equalised a seventh minute opener from Sam Gibson, the seasiders had travelled with just 11 players and a reserve goalkeeper.

IES, fighting to avoid relegation from Premier Division A of the Printwize East League, will now stage the match again on the first available slip date, likely to be March 23.
