January was disrupted due to the severe weather conditions, he was so impressed with the attitude of both teams in trying to play in the awful conditions ( Re : the severe weather conditions on the day ), that he wanted / wished for Stafford Fathom Team to come back and play his Bridgnorth Fathom Team in April.

Saturday 5th. April 2014 ( To be confirmed ) Stafford Fathoms / 5ths Away to Bridgnorth Fathoms – Probably will be a 14:30 pushback on the Grass Pitch outside Bridgnorth Hockey Club , Victoria Road, Bridgnorth, Shropshire WV16 4ER
