Frozen Pitch Sees Off Tie
December 2012, Kick-Off 7pm.thRochdale's Third Round FA Youth Cup with Crewe Alexandra has been postponed due to a frozen pitch. The tie has been rescheduled for Monday 17
The Spotland Stadium pitch was subject to another night of below zero temperatures and despite the frost covers in place since Dale's last home game on Saturday, the frost has got into the surface.
With temperatures set to dip below freezing again from 3pm the decision has been made to keep the covers on and protect the playing surface from deeper freezing.
The decision to postpone this match has been taken after both clubs consulted with each other and the Competitions Department at the Football Association and will now take place on Monday 17th December 2012 with a 7pm kick off.
Prices for the game remain at £3 for Adults and £1 for 16’s and Under.
