Good Friday’s match at Eastleigh has been postponed. The game has been rearranged for Tuesday, April 17th. A statement from Eastleigh FC read:
“Eastleigh Football Club can confirm that our National League game with Ebbsfleet United, scheduled for this afternoon, has been postponed due to the inclement weather.
The club went to great lengths to get the game on, but with overnight rain and further rain forecast, a pitch inspection was called for 9am.
This morning, the pitch was inspected by an FA-approved official, and was deemed too wet to play on in parts. With conditions due to worsen throughout the day, the decision was made to postpone the game early enough so as to not impact on travel plans for supporters and the safety of players.
The club would like to thank the National League and Ebbsfleet for their cooperation on this matter.”
