TAUNTON Town's home match with Beaconsfield Town, scheduled to take place this afternoon, has been postponed following a pitch inspection this morning.

Yesterday club chairman Kevin Sturmey said that he had concerns about the fixture going ahead, and today's 9am inspection at the Viridor Stadium has confirmed those fears - the playing surface being waterlogged.

Sturmey told the club website: "I have serious concerns for [the Beaconsfield] game as we haven’t been able to do the repair work we normally carry out after a match as the pitch was saturated [on Thursday] after a lot of rain overnight."

The Peacocks played Salisbury at home on Wednesday night, winning 4-3, and there have also been several deluges of heavy rain, leaving the pitch saturated with less time for the groundstaff to carry out the normal work on it.

Taunton, currently five points clear at the top of the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division South table after seven consecutive league wins, are due to host Harrow Borough next Saturday, December 8 (ko 3pm).
