STORM Arwen wreaked havoc on the sports fixtures at the weekend, with both the rugby and football called off due to the weather.
Other events were cancelled too.
Langholm Legion’s match up at Chirnside was called off.
“The substantial overnight damage caused both locally and all across the region due to Storm Arwen made it unsafe to play and indeed travel,” said the club’s manager Martin Thomlinson.
“Whilst it’s frustrating another match has passed us by, it’s most definitely the right decision as people’s safety is far more important.”
The sentiment was echoed by Langholm RFC who urged everyone to stay safe.
“We’ve fallen foul to the weather and sadly the game and senior members lunch are off,” the club said.
“The powerlines at the club are down and there’s fallen trees on the road network and around the club.”
After a crazy night of weather, the club got to work on the damage.
They thanked everyone who helped get the club watertight and cleared up the mess.
In addition to the men’s rugby and football, the Langholm RFC mini festival on Sunday was also called off.
Hawick, Dumfries, Annan and Carlisle were meant to be attending, as well as primary teams at every age group from Langholm.
However, the festival was not able to go ahead due to fallen trees and no power at the club.
The next match for Langholm Legion is due to take place on Saturday against Tweedale Rovers away, while Langholm RFC is due to play Inverleith RFC at home.
