The freezing weather put paid to much of the non-league football programme this weekend - with Cumbrian clubs seeing their league and cup hopes dashed.

In the Northern Premier League Premier Division, Workington Reds were denied the chance to play their first home game for six weeks.

A 9am pitch inspection ruled the Borough Park surface unplayable ahead of Saturday's scheduled clash with Hyde United.

Reds will now aim to return to action against Morpeth Town at home next Saturday.

Also cursing the sub-zero conditions were Carlisle City, whose much-anticipated FA Vase third round home tie against Charnock Richard also fell foul of the weather.

The Cumbrian club, who have reached the third round for the first time in their history, will now take on their Lancashire opponents next Saturday instead.

In Northern League Division One, meanwhile, there was no game for Penrith as their trip to Boro Rangers, who are based in Stokesley, was also called off. The Bonny Blues are next in action at home to Tow Law Town next Saturday.

Most county fixtures were also frozen off, with the Cumberland County League Division One clash between Whitehaven AFC Reserves and Keswick a rare survivor, the visitors winning 3-0.

In the Cumberland County League Benevolent Cup quarter-final, Wigton Harriers won 5-2 at Workington AFC Reserves.
