Buxton’s home clash with Marine in the Northern Premier League has been called off due to the Silverlands being covered in snow, whilst in the same division, Matlock Town’s visit to Ramsbottom United has fallen victim to a waterlogged pitch.

Alfreton Town’s away match at Stalybridge Celtic has also been postponed due to heavy rain, as has Belper Town v Romulus in Division One South.

Worksop Town, meanwhile, had hoped to travel to Liversedge in the NCEL Premier Division but that game too has fallen foul of the weather.

Another to fall is AFC Wulfrunians v Heanor Town in the Midland Football League.
