1pm today the Shaymen were notified by Calderdale Council that the pitch was
not fit to be played on.
a soil specialist has been called in to mitigate any potential serious problems
with the grass and work with the Council to provide a longer-term solution.
Byrnes, the head of Calderdale Council`s sports services, said: ''We really
appreciate the club`s efforts to change the fixture to protect the playing
surface and we understand it's a huge inconvenience to all concerned. This will
now allow my team to work tirelessly on the pitch to ensure its fit purpose and
to the standard it needs to be for professional Football."
clubs were still keen to play the fixture, and with this is mind Doncaster kindly
agreed to allow the game to be played behind closed doors at their training
ground tomorrow evening
