Torrential rain at Central Park this afternoon (Monday, May 24) has made it impossible to stage the fixture. The re-staging date is Tuesday, July 6, at 6.30pm.

It follows the loss of planned Eagles and Eastbourne Seagulls fixtures at Arlington Stadium on Saturday because of a downpour - these would have been the first fixtures at the Eagles' home base for 602 days.
