Persistent rain has led to early postponements of both Wroxham and Dereham Town's scheduled matches for this evening – but King's Lynn Town's clash with Merthyr Town is set to go ahead.

The Ryman League North Division sides were both due to play tonight, with Dereham preparing to host Haringey Borough and Wroxham set to travel to Essex to take on Heybridge Swifts.

After pitch inspections, both matches have been postponed due to waterlogged surfaces.

Dereham were looking to extend a nine-game unbeaten run but will now have to wait until Saturday, when the Magpies are scheduled to travel to bottom-of-the-table Waltham Abbey.

The Yachtsmen were hoping to bring an end to a slump of 14 league games without a win and now face a trip to mid-table Aveley on Saturday.

King's Lynn Town are also in action tonight and, after two inspections of The Walks' pitch, are confident their Southern Premier Division encounter with Merthyr will go ahead.

A notice on the Linnets' website states: 'After two inspections this morning and the forecast says no more rain today, means tonight's fixture against Merthyr Town will go ahead at 7.45 this evening.'
