Derby called off for the second time
By Andrew McDonnell
Bedlington Terriers and Ashington will have to wait once again to lock horns after the game at Welfare Park was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.
Referee Lindsey Robinson deemed the pitch unsafe to go ahead, as she called the game off just over an hour before the game was supposed to start.
Both teams waited in anticipation on the sideline while the inspection took place, but to their despair, the game was called off.
The Colliers got the better of the Terriers earlier on in the season, running out 4-0 winners at Woodhorn Lane, and both sides were meant to face-off on Boxing Day.
The weather took its toll forcing that to be postponed, but with a busy schedule ahead for both sides, the question lies, where will the game be played?
Andy Ferrell’s men are set to play eight games in March, weather permitting, and four between now and the end of February.
Whereas Steve Harmison’s side face the prospect of playing nine games in March, and seven in the final month of the season.
Both sides will wait in anticipation to see when the Northern League reschedules the fixture.
