Bury match postponed

2 March 2018

Saturday’s Sky Bet League One game against Bury has been postponed on safety grounds.

Club Doncaster staff had worked throughout Thursday and Friday to clear the Club Doncaster Sports Village car parks and inner ring road, as well as clear snow and ice from within the stadium itself.

EFL appointed referee Richard Wigglesworth carried out a pitch inspection on Friday afternoon and deemed the pitch playable, but after discussions with the safety advisory group, South Yorkshire Police and the EFL the game has been postponed

Club Doncaster’s head of operations Marie Hepburn said: “I’d like to thank all the staff who have been out doing everything they can to get the game ahead, with people from every department within the club willing to put in time and effort to clear the stadium site and pitch.

“Unfortunately, despite all that work, we simply couldn’t guarantee the safety of everyone attending which is the top priority for us. There is further adverse weather forecast overnight and on Saturday morning, and we were only left with one option.”

A re-arranged date and kick-off time will be announced in due course.
