Worksop Town’s FA Vase tie at Tadcaster Albion has been postponed for a second time.

Earlier today the Brewers tweeted that the FA were ordering them to play the game tonight, tomorrow, Thursday or next Tuesday.

But when the match official inspected the flooded and frozen surface this afternoon, it was decided that the game will now be played in a week’s time, on Tuesday 1st December.

The FA’s rules for the Vase competition state that a postponed game must be played by the Thursday after the initial Saturday.

But Tadcaster have suffered due to a river breaking its banks and flooding not only the pitch but parts of the clubhouse, leaving debris including dead fish behind.

The first postponement on Saturday meant the automatic rescheduling of Worksop Town’s midweek game against Retford United – which ironically could have gone ahead at Sandy Lane.

It’s the third time the Bassetlaw derby has been moved, and it will now take place on 10th February.

This weekend, Tigers host their landlords Handsworth Parramore in a crucial NCEL Premier clash.
