Of all games, either this one or Wroxham away you'd never want it to be called off, and with the deadline of the Ryman North only being allowed to Saturday for league games.
After horrific rain the whole of yesterday ahead of the penultimate weekend of the Ryman North season, many games are in threat and a few have already been called off.
Dereham had a pitch inspection booked for 9.30am this morning and the game was called off around fifteen minutes after the referee had arrived. With Aldiss Park being waterlogged and rain still coming the referee had no choice but to postpone the match.
The match has been rescheduled for Thursday Night, ahead of our derby match at home to Thurrock on Saturday (Even professional clubs have a two day breaks and play on Sundays), but not in proper football.
Thursday 21st April

7.45PM Kick Off
