ACCRINGTON Stanley’s weekend clash with Shrewsbury Town ahs been postponed due to a frozen and snow covered playing surface at the Crown Ground.

The game was subject to an early morning pitch inspection on Friday and the referee confirmed what everybody thought, the pitch was never going to be in a fit state come 3pm.

Overnight temperatures dropped as low as -14 in East Lancashire meaning that even should the snow be cleared, the pitch would be rock hard presenting a new problem.

A new date for the tie will be announced shortly.
