Just a single games survives the frozen weather.
Saturday 4th February 2012.
Of the 34 scheduled games just one was to survive,when in a division two encounter at Mowsbury Park. Two goals from Samuel Kehinde and a strike from Eddie Lewis saw Sundon Park Rangers into a 3-0 lead against Queens Park Crescents before the hosts hit back to earn a share of the spoils in a 3-3 draw, thanks to a brace of goals from Ayaz Hussain and a strike from Luke Sozzo.
Preview for Saturday 11th February 2012.
The centre of attention for Premier Division supported by Sportsform clubs this weekend falls upon the quarter-final ties in this season's Britannia Cup. The tie of the round which would have seen current holders Shefford Town & Campton travel to face Caldecote at Harvey Close for the second time inside 14days is now deferred to another date to allow Caldecote to entertain Ampthill Town in their re-arranged Bedfordshire FA Senior Trophy Semi-final tie for which kick off will be 2pm.
However, the other three ties will go ahead and for the in-form club of the moment, Renhold United, its a trip to Hillgrounds to take on AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College. Having won there 5-1 in league action back in mid-November you would expect United to again come out on top.
Elsewhere, over at Crawley Road, Woburn will play host to a Flitwick Town side that beat them in league action at the same venue just a fortnight ago. Whilst at Oakley Playing Fields, Oakley Sports look to take revenge for a league defeat at the hands of Bedford Hatters at the same venue back in mid-November.
Away from the cup action there are also Premier Division supported by Sportsform fixtures to enjoy.At The Armadillo Stadium, Arlesey Town Reserves will be looking for their first home win since beating Flitwick Town back in mid-October when Wilshamstead come calling, but with the visitors having lost just twice on the road in league action this season the home sides task will not be an easy one.
Whilst at Lodge Road, Sharnbrook having lost just once in their last four home outings will fancy their chances of collecting the spoils when paid a visit by a Blunham side whose only away win of the season came at Dunton in mid-December.
Plus, with the resheduled Bedfordshire FA Senior Trophy game taking place at Caldecote, Shefford Town & Campton will climb to the top of the league standings should they retain thier season's unbeaten home ways when visited by second from bottom of table Dunton at Rectory Close.
For division one clubs, the centre of attention likewise falls upon the quarter-final ties in this season's Centenary Cup. Having already lost twice to them since the turn of the New Year, Henlow face a major task at Groveside to make it into the semi-final hat against Sandy and with Lidlington United Sports having already achieved a season's league double over Kings AFC, it is them you would expect to come out on top when the clubs meet for the third time this season at King George VI Playing Fields.
Over at Marston Playing Fields, Marston Shelton Rovers will start the firm favourites to progress at the expense of the visiting Caldecote Reserves.Whilst at Cople Playing Fields, Bedford Sports Athletic host near neighbours Ickwell & Old Warden in a game that could go either way.
Away from the Centenary cup there are also three division one league games taking place. In Mowsbury Park, FC Meppershall will fancy their chances of collecting the spoils when visited by a Luton Boys side that has won just once on the road all season. Whilst at Miller Road, Meltis Abion will be hopeful of their first home win of the season when visited by a AFC Kempston Town & Bedford College side that has lost its last six away games.
The third fixture coming at Pirton Recreation Ground, the venue at which hosts Lea Sports PSG look to take their unbeaten home ways up to four games when visited by a Westoning side that has lost its last four away outings.
The Jubilee Cup action for division two sides this weekend is restricted to just two games.At Stonefield's, AFC Turvey will be firm favourites to progress at the expense of a Potton United Reserves side they have already beaten twice in the league this season and in Stockwood Park, Bromham United will have to be at their very best if they are to overcome hosts Sundon Park Rangers whose last home league defeat came at their hands back in late October.
Division two league action thus being reduced to a programme of just three games. At The Warren, league leaders Elstow Abbey should retain their unbeaten ways when visited by Queens Park Crescents.Whilst at The Luton Regional Sports Centre, Stopsley Park will be the firm favourites to collect the spoils when called upon by bottom of the table Great Barford who come in search of their very first win of the season.
The third and final fixture takes place at Second Meadow, the venue at which Clifton seek out just their second home win of the season against a Pavenham side who are now on a four game unbeaten run.
For the two lower division sides the main action comes in the shape of the last 16 ties in this season's Watson Shield. The tie of the round perhaps being the all division three clash at Jubilee Playing Fields between hosts Wilshamstead Reserves now on a five game winning home run and their high flying Goldington visitors.
Whilst at Stevington Playing Fields, hosts Stevington should make it into the hat for the last eight draw at the expense of the visiting Dunton Reserves whose lone away win of the season came at Eastcotts AFC in the previous round.
Meanwhile at Gold Street, there is an all division three clash between hosts Riseley Sports and the visiting Sundon Park Rangers Colts.
Over in Mowsbury Park, the visitors to face Bedford Park Rangers are now fellow division four side Stewartby Village who were reinstated into the competition after it was discovered Flitwick Town had fielded four in-eligible players against them in their first round victory.
Plus two other division four sides enjoying home advantage are Marsh Leys, who at their Cutler Hammer base take on division three Potton Town and Thurleigh, who at Keysoe Road host fellow division four side Bedford Panthers.
The final fixture coming at Crawley Road, the venue at which you would expect division three hosts Cranfield United Reserves to progress at the expense of division four visitors Dunton A who have won just once on the road all season.
The division three league action thus coming in the shape of just three games. At Weston Park, Eastcotts AFC look for revenge over a Kempston Hammers Sports side that beat them just a fortnight ago.Whilst at Hillgrounds, Royal Oak Kempston search out just their second home win of the season against a visiting Flitwick Town Reserves side that has lost all of their nine away league outings to date this season.
The third and final game seeing Westoning Reserves now without a win from their last nine outings host league leaders Renhold Village at Greenfield Road, the visitors hitting the road unbeaten in their last eight outings firm favourites to collect the spoils.
The league action in division four being a four game affair. On The Green, Ickwell & Old Warden Reserves look to take their unbeaten ways up to six games when visited by Dinamo Flitwick.Whilst at Whiston Crescent,Clifton Reserves will be expecting to collect home win number three on the bounce when visited by a Goldington Hammers side that has lost its last five outings.
A third game comes at Wootton Recreation Ground, the venue at which hosts Wootton Village take on a Shefford Town & Campton A side that has lost it's last four games. Whilst the fourth and final encounter is at Hillgrounds where Kempston Athletic play hosts to the visiting Caldecote A.
