Dagenham & Redbridge v Huddersfield Town - POSTPONED

League One match falls victim to the snow

Dagenham & Redbridge’s League One game against Huddersfield Town, scheduled for tomorrow, has been postponed due to safety concerns.

While the pitch was covered before the recent deluge of snow in London, their Yorkshire opponents were due to travel at lunchtime today and, after an inspection, the surrounding walkways and stands have been deemed too big a risk.

“On the advice of Police and the Club Safety officer the game on Saturday against Huddersfield Town has been postponed,” read an official statement.

“Almost a foot of snow is still covering the pitch at the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Stadium but this has helped keep the pitch soft underneath.

“However the surrounding roads, pathways and terraces have caused enough concern for the game to be called off on the grounds of safety.

“A new date for the game will be announced in due course.”
