HBU Kings European Cup update
HBU Kings cancelled game against Lloret of Spain was unable to go ahead due to airport closure with the UK is gripped in deep freeze, the CERH (European Governing body) informed Herne Bay United that the result of the first game would stand as the result for both games, so no game would be rescheduled, meaning HBU Kings bow out of the European Cup competition. HBU was not the only team to have difficulty with French and German sides also having trouble, Middlesbrough’s game against Braga of Portugal did go ahead with the Portuguese side arriving on Friday, however the assigned European Referees could not make the journey and two local referees governed the match. Though this effectively made the game a friendly Middlesbrough’s supporters got to see the game. Final Score 1-13.
