Lowestoft Town's trip to Folkestone Invicta on Tuesday night has been postponed for a second time.

The match had previously been called off for a waterlogged pitch last month and has been postponed again due to extensive snowfall that has swept the country.

The match is now set to be played on Tuesday, March 27 with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Norwich United are due to travel to Romford in the Bostik North Division on Wednesday night but that is another match that may be decided by the conditions. After an inspection on Tuesday night, Romford will take another look on Wednesday morning,

There was one Thurlow Nunn Premier Division fixture – Coggeshall Town at home to Ely City – which almost made it on Tuesday night, but while both teams warmed up, the match was postponed without a ball being kicked in anger because some parts of the pitch remained frozen. Hadleigh against Saffron Walden and Newmarket at home to Great Yarmouth, were also postponed.
