The big freeze took its toll on football fixtures across the region over the weekend with the majority of games postponed.

Potters Bar Town saw their Southern League Division One Central clash with Egham Town at the Pakex Stadium fall foul of the conditions with the pitch deemed unsafe to play on.

It was the same story in the SSML Premier Division as Welwyn Garden City’s game at Herns Lane with Berkhamsted was postponed.

The only Premier Division match to go ahead saw leaders London Colney extend their advantage at the top.

They defeated bottom side FC Broxbourne Borough 4-0 with a brace from ex-WGC man Dave Parkinson and two for Jon Clements.
