The home & away games have been called off due frozen pitches at both venues
Due to the cold snap, the pitches at St Lawrence Academy on Saturday lunch time were frozen. With the weather forecast being for overnight temperatures of minus 2* in Scunthorpe from 3am until 9am and minus 1* until kick off time, it is extremely likely that the pitches will be frozen solid on Sunday morning. Also, there is snow forecast in Scunthorpe from 9am onwards. As a result and in the best interests of player safety & welfare, the games v York City on Sunday have been cancelled. We have left the decision as late as is practical in the hope that the weather forecast would improve but it hasn't done so. We are also conscious of parents travelling to games on Sunday morning only to have a wasted journey if the game gets called off on arrival at 9.30am.
York City have also cancelled their home games for the same reasons.
