Vale are frozen in their tracks again

VALE of Lune’s home North One West fixture against Wirral was postponed due to a frozen pitch following a severe overnight frost.

This brings the home side’s total of league fixtures that have fallen victim to the weather to an unprecedented four, with their home semi-final in the Lancashire Trophy against Burnage still outstanding.

Since November 20 the Vale have only played four games out of a possible 10, a mixture of league, cup and one club fixture.

Such a break in continuity has slowed the momentum of all clubs, the overriding question will be how quickly the players can pick up the competitive pace.
