Breaking: Phantoms vs Raiders
Raiders at Peterborough, Sunday 10th December
Having taken advice of various highways agencies and traffic update services and web sites the London Raiders regret that they will not be travelling to Peterborough to fulfil today’s league fixture. This decision has been discussed with both the Peterborough management and the League Management representative.
The roads appear to be especially severely affected in the vicinity of Romford and Chelmsford and the A12, A120, M11 and the routes required to exit Essex, not assisted by little evidence of road clearing or gritting.
This combined with forecasts for continued inclement weather later today suggests the return journey would be even more hazardous.
We extend our apologies to the fans, players and management of both teams and hope that a replacement fixture can be organised ASAP
