Lowestoft Town’s Bostik League Premier Division clash against Wingate & Finchley has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

A pitch inspection took place on Tuesday afternoon and the referee deemed the Amber Dew Events Stadium playing surface unfit for action - a date for the rearranged fixture is yet to be set.

A club statement said: “Unfortunately everyone, just our luck at the moment, tonight’s game has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

“Massive effort has been made by the grounds team to get it on but the ref has deemed it unplayable. News on a rescheduled date will be released soon.”

It is the latest blow for the Trawlerboys who recently revealed the depth of a financial crisis, which has seen the players go unpaid for several months.

The club is desperately hoping for bumper attendances in their remaining five home games in the league this season and another postponement will cause the Blues another cash-flow headache.

Meanwhile Norwich United’s Bostik League North clash at home to Hertford has also been postponed.
