A waterlogged pitch at Sandy Lane has caused the cancellation of tonight and tomorrow night’s Worksop Town friendlies.

Tigers were due to take on FC Halifax Town tonight, and NCEL Premier rivals Handsworth Parramore on Tuesday evening.

The playing surface was obviously still very wet when Lincoln City visited at the weekend, although that game was played without problem.

Further rainfall and the prospect of more today has meant the visit of the Shaymen will not take place, which will be a financial blow to Worksop.

And their traditional fixture against Sandy Lane landlords Parramore has also fallen victim.

The club hope the pitch will dry out in time for Friday night’s game against a young Sheffield Wednesday outfit.
