Today’s Bank Holiday Fixture against local rivals Colne has unfortunately been postponed.
The game has been called off due to the top far side of the pitch being deemed dangerous and unplayable by a football league official this morning at an inspection. This is of no fault of our pitch, our pitch is in great condition, the problem is however the adjacent field which has a stream of water running downwards and onto the pitch settling underneath leaving severe bog and a dangerous surface to play on.
This also has consequences on us here at Bacup as we have now lost a lot of money due to this postponement so we are not happy also but it was not our decision.
Following on from this the scheduled fun day due to take place at the game today has now also been postponed.
Next up for the Borough is Maine Road to whom we welcome to West View on Saturday.
