Barrow AFC home clash with Macclesfield put back 24 hours

BARROW AFC have moved back tomorrow’s Conference Premier home clash with Macclesfield Town by 24 hours.

SNOW CHANCE Deep snow on the Holker Street pitch meant Barrow AFC’s scheduled home game against Ebbsfleet was postponed on Saturday LINDSEY DICKINGS REF: 50046170B001

The game was due to take place at Holker Street tomorrow night, but will now be played this coming Wednesday evening (7.45pm).

With Barrow’s home game with Ebbsfleet being postponed due to snow on Saturday, the club made the request to switch the game to Wednesday over the weekend, and Macc duly agreed to it.

The club took the decision to ‘increase the prospects of the game going ahead’ by giving the Holker Street pitch more time to recover from the effects of the recent heavy snow showers. 

A statement on Barrow’s official website, said: “The chances of it going ahead tomorrow are slim, given the amount of water that the melting snow is yielding which is forecast to freeze tonight.

"It is hoped an extra 24 hours will allow better drainage and hence forecast overnight frost on Tuesday will not be a disruptive.

"It is likely a lunchtime pitch inspection will be required on Wednesday."
