Due to the poor weather we have experienced over the last 48 hours, and the incoming Storm Hannah. The decision has been made to cancel both Walking and Social Rugby scheduled for tomorrow evening at the CorpAcq Stadium.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, and hope that both will be back on in the next couple of weeks.

This afternoon’s rescheduled 2nd team fixture versus Vale of Lune 2nd XV that was postponed from the beginning of February, due to snow and ice has been postponed again, as the Carrington pitches are unfit to be played on due to the large volumes of rain water that has fallen thanks to Storm Gareth and Storm Hannah, which has reached us overnight.

The likely rescheduled date for the game is Saturday 30th March 2019, as this is the next Weather Weekend that has been added into the fixture structure by the league.

However, we would suggest that you keep an eye on the website and the Cotton Traders Conference B pages for more details. To access the Cotton Traders Conference B pages please follow the link here
