POSTPONED | Checkatrade Trophy tie called off

Shrewsbury game postponed due to adverse weather

27 February 2018

Tuesday night's Checkatrade Trophy semi-final at Shrewsbury Town has been postponed due to the adverse weather conditions.

With temperatures forecast to fall several degrees below zero before kick-off, the decision was made by both clubs to postpone the fixture with some areas of the pitch already frozen. 

Although the New Meadow pitch had been covered since last week local referee Rob Taylor, as well as both managers, inspected the pitch on Tuesday morning before deeming it unplayable.

The game has been rearranged for next Tuesday, 6th March, with a 7:45pm kick-off. Tickets bought in advance for the game will still be valid and the game will still be shown live on Sky Sports.

The club will still subsidise travel costs, with those booked on to a Green & Whites Supporters Club coach politely asked to contact Paul Hadlow on 07736 044570 to confirm.
