Non-League clubs washed out

Hornchurch and Romford matches off

Hornchurch and Romford have seen matches postponed today due to waterlogged pitches.

Urchins were due to visit Dover in Conference South, but The Crabble Stadium failed a 10am pitch inspection, despite its excellent drainage system.

Romford faced a long trip to Norfolk to take on Ryman Division One North rivals Wroxham, but their Trafford Park pitch was also declared unfit after a 9am inspection.

Both clubs will be hoping the weather improves over the next few days to allow them to stage home matches on Boxing Day.
