IN a period when outdoor sport has come to a virtual standstill due to the cold weather, Ludlow Town Football Club are indebted to their artificial pitch which allows play to continue.

Ludlow Town Colts were able to complete their Shropshire Alliance fixture with top-of-the-table Rock Rovers last Saturday.

Unfortunately they went down 3-2.

The six-a-side midweek league is also taking place, while near neighbours Hereford United were also able to use the facility for training earlier in the week.
