Stags Vs Macclesfield - Called Off
MANSFIELD Town's game against Macclesfield Town this afternoon has been called off.
Heavy snowfall overnight and this morning has left conditions unplayable – despite hopes the game could be played with the help of volunteers to remove the snow.
In a statement to the club website, Joint Operations Director Paul Broughton said: "The match has been called off on both public safety grounds and because of the pitch."
Around five inches of snow are covering the pitch and surrounding areas, leading referee Dave Plowright to call off the game at 9am this morning.
