It's snow joke

Snow.It's the holiday season, unless you're a British footballer.

How bad is the winter in the UK, where football insists on playing o
n while other nations enjoy a hibernal hiatus? Some parts of Britain have recorded record low temperatures at the end of 2010, the coldest snap since detailed records began in 1910.

Given England's World Cup failure in the summer, calls for a December/January pause are resonating more loudly than ever.

Here's today's fixtures in Scotland's come rain or shine Highland League:

Brora Rangers OFF Fraserburgh
Buckie Thistle OFF Formatine United
Cove Rangers OFF Rothes
Deveronvale OFF Inverurie Loco Works
Fort William OFF Keith
Huntly OFF Strathspey Thistle
Lossiemouth OFF Forres Mechanics
Turriff United OFF Nairn County
Wick Academy OFF Clachnacuddin

A winter break? Q.E.D.
