Welwyn Hatfield sports fixtures set to feel the freeze

Sports fixtures across Welwyn Hatfield are in danger of being called-off due to Arctic conditions.

SPORT in Times Territory could be the loser this weekend as the weather shows no signs of improving.

Heavy snow has formed a blanket across many pitches and playing fields in the area, and although it appears the weekend may be snow-free, the freezing conditions are set to continue.

BBC weather forecasters have predicted the maximum temperature on Saturday for our area will be -1 degrees Celsius, with Sunday improving slightly to +1.

This looks like it could put paid to Welwyn Garden City FC’s relegation six-pointer at home to fellow South Midlands Premier Division strugglers Haringey Borough.

And Potters Bar Town FC will be praying for a weather miracle as they are set to host Tilbury in Division One North of the Ryman League.

On the rugby front, Welwyn’s home derby game against Harpenden at Hobbs Way, as well as Hatfield’s match against Watford at Roe Hill Hall could also fall foul of the freezing conditions.
