Diamonds don’t have to wait long to return to action, however, as they are due to take on Cogenhoe United in the semi-finals of the NFA Hillier Senior Cup at Hayden Road on Tuesday night.

Corby Town’s Evo-Stik League South Division One Central clash at Barton Rovers has been also been postponed.

The pitch was covered in a blanket of snow yesterday (Friday) and the inevitable was confirmed following a morning inspection.

It means the Steelmen will now have to wait until next weekend to return to action when they are due to host Dunstable Town.
