Ipswich Witches’ Good Friday double header with Lakeside was a total washout after the Suffolk side’s home clash with the Hammers, set for this afternoon, was called off at 10.15am.
The away clash at Lakeside was called off yesterday.
It was a frustrating non-start to the season for the Witches, but the Suffolk track was very wet after overnight rain, and with a poor forecast for this afternoon and evening, both clubs called their clashes off.
It means the Witches head into Sunday’s clash with Peterborough Panthers at Alwalton with little racing under their belts.
The Championship Shield meeting starts at 7pm at Peterborough.
