TAUNTON Town FC's home match that was scheduled to take place at 7.45pm tonight (March 14) has been postponed.

The match against local rivals Weston-super-Mare AFC was rescheduled for a Thursday night after it was postponed earlier in the year.

And earlier today, the club said the game would go ahead after a morning pitch inspection.

However following heavy rain for the entire afternoon in Taunton, a second inspection deemed the pitch unplayable and therefore the game was postponed.

A spokesperson from the club said: "After 2 hours of non-stop rain, tonight's match withย Weston-super-Mare AFCย has been postponed by the Match Referee.

"The Clubhouse will be open tonight for all the European football so please pop down and help support the club."

A new date will be announced in due course.
