Today’s game between AFC Telford United and York City has been called off.

The fixture has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. Volunteers and officials at Telford United had been clearing snow from the pitch at the New Bucks Head Stadium since 8am this morning.

However, following a pitch inspection held shortly before 9.30am, the match officials have ruled that the pitch is not playable due to waterlogging of the pitch under the frost covers.

A re-arranged date for the Vanarama National League North fixture will be announced in due course.
