Christmas comes before the football at Linby!

Forget the football, let’s do some Christmas shopping and get ready for the club’s annual Christmas outing!

That was the case for LINBY COLLIERY WELFARE last Saturday after matches involving their first team and reserves were both postponed, ahead of their big night out in Chesterfield.

The senior side’s match at home to Harrowby Saints in the Central Midlands League’s South Division was called off because their Grantham visitors had three players selected for the Notts FA Under-18s’ representative side on the same day.

The reserves’ game away to Nottinghamshire in the Notts Senior League’s First Division went the same way because of a waterlogged pitch.
