Game off because of frozen surface

ASHINGTON’S scheduled STL Northern League match away to Spennymoor last weekend was called off shortly before midday due to a frozen surface.

“STL Northern League referee Paul Thompson made one inspection and when he returned later he called the game off after taking another look.

Ashington are due to meet Spennymoor on Tuesday, January 24, at Woodhorn Lane, and Ainsley added: “It is a tough place to go and the Colliers are having a good season.

“There may be a knock-on effect following our FA Vase exit to Ashington and I’d be more than happy if we win the game.”
