Lewes versus Leatherhead at the Pan tomorrow is OFF

The match between Lewes and Leatherhead scheduled for the Dripping Pan tommorrow has fallen victim to the weather.

Club chiefs have announced the Ryman Premier game will not take place due to a frozen pitch.

The news was broken on Twitter at just after midday today.

Club secretary Kevin Brook last night revealed the problem with the pitch concentrated on a relatively small part of the surface, presumably blocked off from the sun’s rays.

Speaking on the fans forum last night, he said: “(The) pitch is still covered in snow but the main area of concern is a section of the pitch near the Portakabin, which is completely frozen.

“We’ll be monitoring the conditions tomorrow and should this area continue to be frozen then the club will make an official announcement.”

That announcement was: “The Lewes v Leatherhead match tomorrow has been postponed. A re-arranged date will be announced in due course.”

Coincidentally, the Rooks last night revealed the rescheduled date of the game that was called off LAST weekend because of the cold snap that has covered the whole country. The club website said: “After last Saturday’s postponement, Lewes will now travel to Wingate and Finchley on Tuesday 13th March, kick off 7.45pm.”
