Braintree Town have confirmed that Friday's Blue Square Bet Premier fixture against Grimsby Town has been postponed due to snow and frost on the Amlin Stadium pitch.

Following a pitch inspection on Thursday evening, Iron chairman Lee Harding posted on the club's fans' internet messageboard to confirm that the game would not go ahead.

A heavy blanket of snow still on the playing surface along with sub-zero temperatures and further snowfall forecast in the lead-up to the game meant the game had to be postponed.

It means Braintree's next scheduled fixture will be their league game at Dartford on Tuesday.
