King's Lynn Town's National League clash at Chesterfield postponed




King's Lynn Town's National League clash at Chesterfield this evening has been postponed.

A heavy downpour two hours before the scheduled kick-off left parts of the Technique Stadium under water.

A post on Chesterfield's official website said: "Tonight’s fixture at home to King’s Lynn Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

"Community Trust staff and volunteers worked hard to clear snow from the pitch during the day but continuous rain over a the space of a few hours made the pitch unplayable.

"After inspecting the pitch, the referee announced that the match would be postponed.

"A new date for the fixture will be arranged in due course."

The latest postponement leaves Ian Culverhouse's side with 27 games to play in the space of 14 weeks – should the season be completed as planned.

Yesterday National League clubs were asked to vote on resolutions which could see the season declared null and void.

Lynn, without a league fixture on Saturday, are next in action when they travel to Bromley on February 9.
