Louth Town game beaten by frozen pitch

Louth Town’s Saturday fixture fell victim to the cold weather as a frozen pitch put paid to their trip to Askern Villa.

An early morning pitch inspection was enough for the officials to call the game off.

Paul Walden’s men will resume their campaign at 12th placed AFC Emley on Saturday.

Meanwhile the White Wolves have been drawn to play Shirebrook Town at home in the semi-final of the Wilkinson Sword Trophy. The date is yet to be confirmed for this fixture.
