Integro Cup trip to Cleethorpes Town postponed because of snow

Wednesday’s Integro Cup tie between Cleethorpes Town and South Shields has been postponed because of snow and hazardous conditions.

Heavy snowfall has battered the east of the country over the last 24 hours, and more is forecast to follow in the coming days.

That put the third round tie at Cleethorpes in severe doubt, and the pitch unsurprisingly failed an inspection on Wednesday morning.

The match is due to be a rematch of last season’s FA Vase final at Wembley, which Shields won 4-0 to claim the first national trophy in the club’s history.

The fixture is now due to be played on Thursday, March 8, with kick-off at 7.45pm.
