Thwarted by the Traffic

Kidderminster away is never the easiest of journeys, and with the closure of the M6 Toll Road causing gridlock to the south of Stafford it became mission impossible.

The car containing 3 players heading for the Wolverhampton League Division One match had barely reached the outskirts of Stafford by the scheduled start time, and there was nothing to be done but to telephone apologies and turn around.  The other 3 Stafford players did arrive from different points of the compass, and Kidderminster kindly agreed for the match to be postponed to a yet-to-be-determined date. 

 At least those who did make it were able to enjoy a few blitz games with some of the Kidderminster team before heading home.
