There will be a pitch inspection at 9:30am for tomorrow’s game against Curzon Ashton.
The Met office has officially issued a yellow weather warning for Storm Dennis, saying to expect “heavy rain and widespread strong winds to many parts of the UK”.
Winds of up to 50mph are expected and supporter safety needs to be taken into consideration.
There are two main considerations to make when conducting a pitch inspection: player safety and the match as a spectacle,
A referee has to consider whether the playing conditions threaten the wellbeing of the players and whether they compromise the match as a spectacle for the fans.
The ground staff are working hard to ensure the game goes ahead.
An update will be provided tomorrow after the inspection is complete.
