Buxton Trophy tie with Bradford Park Avenue abandoned


Buxton’s opening FA Trophy tie against Bradford Park Avenue was abandoned at half-time today due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Silverlands surface did not need a pre-match inspection.

But heavy rain fell during the first half and, with pools of water appearing and the ball getting stuck, the referee had little option but to call a halt to proceedings.

The game, which was still locked at 0-0, will now be replayed on Tuesday night at Silverlands with Buxton offering free admission.
