The wintry weather has already claimed two sports fixtures for Saturday, with Scarborough RUFC’s trip to Ilkley and Scarborough Town FC’s game at home to Bransholme called off.

Derek Exley’s Town troops were looking to bounce back from their 2-1 Humber Premier defeat against Hessle last weekend, but the icy weather has caused the game to be called off this morning.

The Yorkshire One fixture between Ilkley and Scarborough RUFC was also called off this morning, so Jason Lowde’s squad will now be having a training session - possibly indoors - at Silver Royd on Saturday instead.

With the sub-zero temperatures and show set to continue over the weekend, it is looking likely that most sporting fixtures will struggle to go ahead.

More updates on postponed games on the website tomorrow.
