AFC Telford United v Gateshead postponed because of a frozen pitch

New Bucks Head Stadium
Overnight frost made the surface unplayable at the New Bucks Head ground

Telford United's Conference fixture against Gateshead, which was scheduled for Sunday, has been postponed because of a frozen pitch.

A pitch inspection at the New Bucks Head ground deemed the surface unplayable.

Adverse weather conditions and overnight frost in the Shropshire area meant that the wet surface was unable to drain overnight.

A new date for the re-arranged fixture has yet to be announced.
