Volunteers are requested to attend Peterlee’s Eden Lane on Saturday to help get the ground ready for the new season.

The work is expected to take around two hours, and will begin from 10am.

Jobs that need doing include weeding and paintwork, and the club would appreciate anyone willing to help.

Today’s game against Ryton and Crawcrook Albion at Eden Lane has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

An inspection took place at 10.30am today, but due to standing water, as well as a poor afternoon weather forecast, it was decided the match should be called off.

The club is hopeful Tuesday’s home game against West Auckland Town in the Durham Challenge Cup will go ahead.

Details of the rearranged fixture against Ryton and Crawcrook will be released in due course.

A pitch inspection will take place at Eden Lane tomorrow ahead of the Northern League Division Two clash with Ryton and Crawcrook Albion.

The surface will be assessed at 10.30am following recent heavy rain, with standing water currently on the pitch.

Whether the game goes ahead is likely to depend on overnight weather conditions.

Full details on whether the game is on will be published on the club website after the inspection.
