Game against Ossett Town postponed after heavy rain

Tuesday’s Evo-Stik North Division match between South Shields and Ossett Town has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

Much work was undertaken on Monday to make the surface at Mariners Park playable following heavy snowfall over the last week.

However, a deluge of rain overnight left a great deal of surface water on the pitch.

An inspection was held on Tuesday morning, when it was decided that the game could not go ahead.

A rearranged date for the fixture will be announced in due course.
