The most severe weather yet of this winter put paid to King’s Lynn Town Reserves’ home match on Saturday.

The Thurlow Nunn League First Division game with new boys Framlingham Town was postponed due to a frozen pitch at The Walks.

East Anglia along with the rest of the country suffered freezing temperatures, snow and sleet over the preceding few days, although the region escaped the worst conditions.

Downham Town also fell victim to the wintry weather at Wisbech St Mary in the First Division.

However, Premier Division games involving the Ghosts and Pedlars went ahead. But there was no joy for the local sides as Fakenham Town lost 4-2 at FC Clacton and Swaffham Town went down away to Felixstowe & Walton United 3-0.
