Only eight matches survived the frosty weather on a depleted morning of action in the Notts Sunday League. But that didn’t bother Hucknall outfit AFC H2O because their trip to West Bridgford to take on ABP got the go-ahead -- and they pulled off an impressive 3-1 victory.

The high-flying home side went into the contest in second place in the Premier First Division table. But they soon found themselves three goals down as Luke Kirby, Sean Williams and Greg Conn all hit the target for AFC.

Sam Stansfield did pull one back for ABP on the hour, but the locals held on comfortably for only their fourth win of the campaign, which lifted them to sixth in the table.

The result also set up AFC nicely for this Sunday’s big derby against BARFLYS H2O, with whom they share a pitch at Eastwood.

Every other match in the league involving teams from the Dispatch district was postponed. Of those that went ahead elsewhere, the most significant was a second successive defeat for Premier Premier Division leaders Old Colonial. This time, they went down 3-0 to unbeaten Trentside, whose scorers included Hucknall Town midfielder Leon Aikman.
