Harrogate Town have postponed Tuesday night’s Blue Square North match at home to Bishop’s Stortford.

The match now faces being rescheduled for an incredible fourth time.

A spokesman for the club said: “Due to the bad weather that we have had recently, a referee has deemed that the pitch at the CNG Stadium is unplayable.

“Therefore tonight’s match against Bishop’s Stortford has been postponed and will be played at a later date.”

The fixture has previously been hampered by bad weather, and an FA Cup replay against West Auckland Town.

Town’s pitch was levelled and re-sown during pre-season, in a major operation at Wetherby Road.

Town return to action on Saturday away at Hyde, in the FA Cup fourth round qualifying (3pm).

Simon Weaver’s troops are buzzing after a stunning 6-1 win at home to Blue Square North leaders Brackley Town on Saturday.

Paul Beesley scored a brace, with Chib Chilaka, Tom Platt, Alan White and Danny Forrest all on the scoresheet.
