Woodhouse Cup Match Huddersfield v Sheffield B, scheduled for 09/12/2017


The Sheffield B captain was concerned about forecast snow and sub-zero temperatures, with the prospect of possibly being stranded in Huddersfield, or having an accident on the return journey.  He discussed the matter on the day with his Huddersfield counterpart who didn’t feel a postponement was appropriate.  In the event Sheffield nevertheless elected not to travel, and have requested a postponement under that part of Rule A5 which refers to “severe weather conditions on the day of the match.”  It seems this might be referred to the Executive Committee.


The outcome will necessarily be either a postponement or treatment as a default by Sheffield B.
