Corby Town have been left with another blank Saturday after their home clash with Redditch United today was postponed.

The Steel Park pitch has struggled with drainage issues in the centre of the surface all season and with more rain recently, an early inspection resulted in another home game in the Calor League Premier Division being called off.

The club said in a statement: “This afternoon’s match between Corby Town and Redditch United has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

“A huge thank you to all of our supporters and ground staff who have worked extremely hard to try and get today’s game on.”

The Steelmen, meanwhile, have now registered the Rockingham Triangle Stadium with the Southern League in a bid to get future home matches on.

The stadium was graded by the league’s governing body on Thursday, which will allow Corby to play at the Triangle when required as the issues around the main pitch at Steel Park are resolved.

The Triangle was the Steelmen’s home until 2011 when they moved into Steel Park, which will still be used when possible for home matches.

The Triangle was not eligible for today’s game against Redditch.

The Steelmen, who won 3-1 at Bashley in midweek, are due to return to action on Wednesday night when they entertain AFC Totton.
