LUDLOW FC cannot buy a game for love nor money at the moment – and it’s not even down to the winter weather.

The West Midlands League Division Two side’s last two matches have been cancelled for unusual reasons and now, this weekend, they have a bye on the fixture list.

Last Saturday’s game at Oldbury United fell by the wayside after the hosts – for the second time this season – folded and withdrew from the league.

A week earlier, Ludlow’s Shropshire Cup clash with St Martin’s ended with a home walkover because a sickness bug left the visitors unable to travel.

It all means that by the time Ludlow host Wolverhampton United in the league on December 22, they will not have played since November 24.

Boss Chris Waldron groaned: “You do half expect games to be called off at this time of year but it’s a nightmare – by the time we play next, we will have gone four weeks without a game.

“It’s very frustrating because the boys want to play, so I am trying to get some friendlies sorted but I have not had much luck so far.”
