Gateshead FC encounters are rearranged

Heed encounters are rearranged

NEW dates have been set for three Gateshead matches after they suffered their seventh postponement in eight scheduled home games last night.

Their FA Trophy third-round tie against Barrow was the latest game to fall foul of the weather. It is now due to take place on Tuesday, with the winners at Gainsborough Trinity in the quarter-final.

The Tynesiders are looking at alternative venues, but provisions have also been made for the game to be played a week on Saturday if that is not possible.

Two Conference away games have been rescheduled for March.

The game at Forest Green Rovers will now be on March 5, with the trip to AFC Telford United a week later.
