Tulips Game Washed Out

This afternoon's Evo-Stik South game between Sheffield FC and Spalding United has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. 

Following heavy rainfall all week, a decision was made to invite local referee Jamie O'Connor to carry out an early pitch inspection to avoid an unnecessary long journey for our visitors from Lincolnshire, with the official deeming the pitch unlikely to drain of surface water in time for the 3pm kick. 

Manager Mark Shaw spoke at the decision; "naturally I'm disappointed that we can't get the game on today, we had anearly a full squad available and were raring to go after our success on New Year's Day, however I always feel the safety of both sets of players is paramount."
