What happened to 11am kick-offs on Easter Monday?

I recall in my youth managing to watch 3 games on Easter Monday - 11am, 3pm and 7.30pm kick offs - taking in games at Hinckley or Beduff,, Boro’ and Leicester or Cov. Is that right, or is my memory playing up (again)?

I remember Easter Monday's Chapel End Nursing Cup at first Hartshill,then Ansley Hall,then Hartshill REC (briefly I believe) and Stockingford AA Pavilion.
The cup allegedly holds 22 pints...A pint for each player back then.
Edit: I seem to recall that Bermuda FC May have hosted the final as well but I may be thinking of BASICS.
Another sign of the times as it's not played for nowadays,Saturday sides anyway.

Forensic analysis of posts not available here.

I did it once with Boro away to Coventry Sporting, Cov at Home v ? and then evening game, one of the Hinckleys home to Heather St Johns . I think.
