Rochdale v Southend: Game Off

23 March 2013

Following a night of heavy snow in the area Saturday's game with Southend United has been called off for safety reasons.

Following a night of heavy snow in the area Saturday's game with Southend United has been called off for safety reasons.  Around two to three inches of snow has settled on the pitch. Aided by strong winds snow has also found its way into the stands, seats and walkways, drifting up to three feet in places making the job of clearing it it such a short space of time impossible.

With conditions set to stay the same weather wise match referee Craig Pawson called the game off due to safety reasons as surrounding areas are also badly affected by the snow.  A new date will be announced  in the coming days.
