A new date for the Norfolk Senior Cup quarter-final between Cromer Town and Norwich City’s Under-21s has been confirmed.
Heavy rain over the weekend left Cromer’s Cabbell Park pitch unplayable and caused Monday night’s match to be postponed.
That was the fourth time the game had been rearranged, firstly because of a clash with City’s FA Youth Cup game at Preston North End and then three times because of a waterlogged pitch.
The fifth attempt at playing the game has now been set for next Tuesday, February 4, with a 7.30pm kick-off.
A pitch inspection will be held at Cabbell Park on Monday and if the ground is still not up to standard, the match will be switched to the Norfolk FA’s Football Development Centre (FDC) pitch in the Bowthorpe area of Norwich.
City are the current holders of the Norfolk Senior Cup, having beaten Wroxham at Carrow Road last May, and are likely to field several of the young stars who won the FA Youth Cup last season.
