Blyth RFC hoping Houghton game will go ahead

Blyth Rugby Football Club’s home game against local rivals Ashington on Saturday fell victim to the weather and will now be rearranged for later in the season.

That leaves Blyth without a game since Saturday, December 19.

Next week’s game is away to Houghton, near Sunderland, with a 2.15pm kick-off, but supporters are advised to check with the club before travelling in case that one ends up being cancelled too.
