Although the pitch was playable this morning, within a short period before kick off a blizzard ensued.

The referee had at that point an easy decision to call off the match, fearing for the safety of players.

One good thing to come out of the call-off was the generous gesture from the Rovers to donate the unsold pies and sausage rolls from today’s match to a local homeless charity.

Fingers crossed for a game next week.
