    We are sad to report that following heavy down pours overnight, our game with Ramsbottom United due to take place this evening, has once again succumbed to the weather.

    A local referee was called in this afternoon when concerns were raised about the surface when reviewed this morning, despite clearer weather forecast.

    It has been no secret that the pitch at Gigg Lane has suffered considerably through the wet winter period. There have been regular postponements within this time, with water often sat on the surface and the pitch struggling to drain without the benefit of a long period to dry out.

    The effort to get games on has been considerable, with ground staff working up against it on many occassions. Playing two home games over the last Tuesday and Saturday, has led to significant deterioration. The rain falling during the game on Saturday, as well as the significant down pours overnight have left the surface unplayable.

    Works to improve the surface between now and our next game on Easter Saturday are ongoing. We are all praying for less rain at the same time!

    Another new date for this fixture will be confirmed in due course, and tickets will be valid for the rearranged fixture.
