New Mills and Mickleover to try again in FA Cup

NEW MILLS AFC’s home FA Cup Preliminary Round tie against Mickleover Sports has been rescheduled for tonight (Monday).

The match was due to have been played on Saturday but had to be postponed ten minutes prior to kick-off due to a waterlogged Church Lane pitch.

New Mills club secretary Duncan Hibbert said: “Torrential rain which started around 2pm left the Church Lane pitch completely sodden and once it became apparent that the ball would not run truly across the playing surface, the match officials had little alternative but to call the game off.”

The game has been rescheduled at Church Lane for this evening (Monday) with a 7.45pm kick-off.
