FA Trophy clash postponed

Tonight's FA Trophy Third Round match between Gateshead and Barrow has been postponed for health and safety reasons.

The Heed are officially the tie's home team but the game was switched from the International Stadium to Barrow's Holker Street Stadium due to ongoing pitch problems at Gateshead.

However, Barrow have announced that Gateshead's coach company were reluctant to make the trip after recent snow has left the A66 shut, and the A69 only passable with care. The club added that both parties have agreed to postpone the match until Saturday 26 January.
