Southam's fixture is abandoned due to fog

An impeccably observed minute's silence before the match in honour of former coach Barry Rumble was the precursor to a strange ending to Southam United's home Midland League Division fixture with Pershore last Saturday.

The referee calls a halt to the game with Southam trailing 4-0.

The mist had started gathering in the first half, but then seemed to be clearing before the fog came in very heavily half-way through the second period.

The referee was left with no alternative but to call a break in proceedings as it became impossible to see the ball. He then abandoned the game.

Pershore were leading 4-0 at the time.

Saints return to action on Boxing Day when they travel to Townsend Meadow to play Racing Club Warwick (3pm).
