Oldham Game Gets Go Ahead

22 January 2013

The Meadow Lane playing surface has been passed fit for action...

Notts County are delighted to announce that Tuesday night’s planned npower League 1 match against Oldham Athletic is due to go ahead as planned, following two pitch inspections.

Having beaten the wintery weather to get Saturday’s game against Sheffield United on as planned, Notts faced further snow and frost over the weekend and made the decision to call an early inspection to test the condition of the pitch.

Despite further freezing temperatures overnight and into the morning, the pitch has stood up remarkably well and, following a further check in the afternoon, has been passed fit to go ahead as scheduled.

The frost covers had been put back on the Meadow Lane pitch immediately after Saturday’s game thanks to the help of supporters who stayed behind to assist the groundstaff and that hard work seems to have paid off.

Phil Joslin, who conducted both inspections throughout the day has contacted match referee Mark Brown to confirm that he is happy for the game to go ahead as scheduled and the club are now finalising match preparations ahead of the 7:45pm kick-off.
