The Coral Stadium in London Road, Romford, was forced to close last Monday, Tuesday and Thursday but partially reopened on Friday and Saturday, before management announced you throughout this week.

However, the Coral Essex Vase, a popular competition run at the venue over 575m which was due to take place tonight (Fri), has been postponed.

This afternoon, the Dogs’ official Twitter account has revealed the track will reopen for usual business from Monday, November 27.
