Following an 8.30am pitch inspection at the Saunders Honda Stadium, Chester …. it has been decided that the pitch is not playable and the match is OFF.

Although the pitch had been mainly cleared of snow on Friday, heavy overnight freezing has turned it into a skating rink leaving the match referee with no alternative but to call it off.

It was still snowing in Chester at 8.30am and the forecast today gives cold conditions. Therefore it was decided that there was no chance of a thaw by this afternoon.
