Welwyn game off after official no show
PUBLISHED: 17:00 04 October 2012
WELWYN RFC’s London 3 North West clash away at London New Zealand was postponed on Saturday after the referee failed to turn up.
The official, organised by the home team, failed to show so the game was postponed and will be re-scheduled for an available date later in the season.
Clearly, the afternoon at Twyford Avenue was jinxed.
Another London NW3 match, between Wasps Amateurs and Barnet Elizabethans, being played on an adjacent pitch, was brought to a halt after 23 minutes when their referee pulled up with a torn Achilles.
With no alternative referee available, that match too was called-off.
This Saturday Welwyn are in action at home to Hitchin, kick-off 3pm.
