King's Lynn Town's home National League clash against Solihull Moors postponed due to waterlogged pitch




King's Lynn Town's home clash against Solihull Moors this afternoon was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Heavy rain since early this morning left parts of the playing surface at The Walks under water and a decision to call the game off was made an hour before the scheduled kick-off.

Lynn were hoping to avenge their 5-0 thrashing in the reverse fixture of last October as they looked an end a run of eight games without a win.
