Semi-final is hit by snow

OXTED Ladies will have to wait to play their Investec Women's Vase Semi-final after the game was postponed on Sunday.

The O's were due to play West Bridgford Monarchs in the semi-final of the competition that they won for the first time last year, but the game was postponed early in the morning as the Nottinghamshire side was unable to travel due to snow in the Midlands.

A new date for the clash has yet to be confirmed, but it is looking likely that the game will not be played until the weekend of April 13-14.

O's skipper Lisa Nightingale said it was frustrating that the game was postponed, but said that the two sides would at least know who their opponents in the final would be by the time the semi-final is played, with Guernsey and Andover playing on April 7.

She said: "It was frustrating as everyone seemed really pumped up for the game on Sunday.

"We were ready to go and we were really looking forward to the game. But now we have to wait three weeks and hopefully we will be just as pumped up for the game then."

Nightingale added that the postponement did at least extend the holders' season, with the Surrey Premier Division season finishing earlier this month, with the O's finishing second.

But she said that on a personal level, it meant the game would come just a week after the Paris Marathon, which she is running with her brother to raise money for Brain Tumour UK.

Nightingale's father Peter died from a brain tumour last year, while her uncle Graham Nussbaum and family friend Ben Chandler also died as a result of brain tumours.

She said training was going well.
