King's Lynn have moved quickly to rearrange their cup tie with Leicester at the Adrian Flux Arena.

Boss Dale Allitt has confirmed the clubs have agreed to make the Premiership meeting scheduled for May 16 a Knockout Cup tie with Wednesday night's scheduled meeting washed out.

It means the sides will meet over two weeks to decide who makes the semi-finals with the first leg at Leicester on Monday, May 7.

King's Lynn co-promoter Keith Chapman said: 'It's a major disappointment for us all to start the season like this but it's not just us, every club seems to have been hit.

'We didn't want to try and get Wednesday on with a serious risk it wouldn't go ahead, we want to start the season on a good track with a big crowd and that wouldn't happen this Wednesday.
