Consett hope it’s third time lucky after new date is agreed for Cleethorpes Town game

Consett’s twice-postponed home game against Cleethorpes Town has today had a new date approved by the Northern Premier League.

The NPL Division One East fixture at Belle View Stadium has fallen victim to the weather twice, on 17 December and again on 17 January.

Now the clubs have agreed to play the game on Tuesday 7 March, with a 7.45pm kick-off, and the league has approved the date.

The away game at Cleethorpes back in August was our first as a Northern Premier League club.
