Magpies forced to play waiting game

Dereham Town face a nervous wait to see if their rearranged FA Vase match at Larkhall will go-ahead on Saturday after the Bath club had to call off another match last night.

Dereham Town face a nervous wait to see if their rearranged FA Vase match at Larkhall will go-ahead on Saturday after the Bath club had to call off another match last night. A waterlogged pitch caused the fourth round tie to be called off last Saturday and is due to be played this weekend. Larkhall were due to play Almondsbury last night but ground staff were unable to get the pitch in a playable condition. With poor weather forecast, there will now be lots of crossed fingers that conditions will improve before Saturday. Dereham players are due to again travel down on the day before the game and will be liaising with Larkhall to monitor the situation.
