Grantham Town’s match against Stafford Rangers at The Meres was abandoned due to the weather.

The Northern Premier League Premier Division match kicked off under floodlit conditions, with heavy rain which turned to hail, accompanied by thunder and forked lightning



Referee Mr Pashley took the players off the pitch with less than two minutes played.

Play looked to be resuming after a 15 minute break, but with the rain persisting and the pitch awash with standing water, the game was abandoned, with Mr Pashley deeming it unsafe to play.
