Saturday’s game against Colchester United has been postponed following a pitch inspection at Victoria Park.

Heavy snow and plummeting temperatures meant ground staff were up against it in their battle to save the fixture and local referee Neil Sharp confirmed the postponement after a 10.30am inspection this morning.

Adverse weather conditions are set to decimate the fixture list this weekend with Pools’ game one of several already called off.

No new date has yet been arranged.
