Todmorden Borough are without a game this weekend, having been forced into a late postponement last Saturday.

Stoneclough were due to visit in Division Two of the West Lancashire League and boss John Gilford was at the Bellholme ground on Saturday morning and confident that the game would go ahead.

However, the heavens opened and by 1pm the pitch was under water, forcing Gilford to ring their opponents from Bolton and tell them not to travel.

Borough’s next game is away to third-placed Milnthorpe Corinthians on Saturday week and Gilford is hoping his men will be in action on the following three Saturdays to complete the season.
