Trip to Gresley postponed

Rugby Town were unable to play their NPL South Division game on Saturday when the freezing winter weather got the better of Gresley’s pitch.

Valley’s next game is this Saturday, at Butlin Road when they host bottom club Tividale.

Because of their week off, manager Dale Belford’s men have slipped a place in the division to 12th, but remain just three points outside the play-off zone in a very tight mid-table.
