Bad weather forces early finish at Gawthorpe
The Clarets’ Youth Alliance derby against Accrington Stanley was abandoned after just a few minutes at Gawthorpe this afternoon.
The game was given the go-ahead following a pitch inspection after heavy overnight and morning rain.
But high winds were also a problem and when an early goalkick was blown backwards the referee decided to call it a day.
The game would have been the Clarets' first home fixture since mid-November with the bad weather decimating the recent youth programme.
Details of the re-arranged fixture will be released when confirmed.
