Waterlogged pitches have again proved the bane of Welwyn Garden City and Potters Bar Town.

The pair are already facing an extremely busy finish to the season and now have to add one more rearranged game to the mix.

Welwyn's Southern League clash at the Pexhurst Stadium against was called off early on Saturday morning.

But after persistent rain through the week in Hertfordshire, the early pitch inspection always seemed more procedural than precautionary.

The Scholars, however, had not only made the trip to Folkestone Invicta but had set-up the pre-match warm-up too.

Speaking on Twitter, the Kent club had said just before 1pm that the pitch had been passed fit earlier in the morning but a "downpour" meant another check was required.

This one failed.

Both sides are set to play tomorrow night (Tuesday) at home, City versus Kempston Rovers and the Bar against Dulwich Hamlet.

The Scholars are then back at home on Saturday when they face Hastings United but Welwyn go to Barton Rovers.

The Citizens will be hoping that their new signing has made his debut by then,

Lynton Goss has made his name in the division as a prolific striker, linking up in the past with City's Brad Wadkins as a formidable duo at Berkhamsted.

He arrives from Southern League Division One Central leaders Bedford Town and while the signing was not one that manager Marc Weatherstone perhaps needed, it was certainly one he wanted.

He said: "We didn’t need front line reinforcements, but heard of Lynton’s availability and it was a no brainer to try and sign him.

"He knew a couple of our players in skipper Brad Wadkins and James Mulley and that helped smooth the path for him to join us.

"He’s a massive coup for us.

"Lynton is a player I have admired for a while, his hunger, strength and work rate to name but a few stood out from a mile off.

"We have always said that if a player of his stature is available and it works within our budget, then we will do our best to get them in to improve us.

"He had a number of clubs after him but after speaking to him, he liked what we are trying to do, so I am very happy he chose us."

The 28-year-old began with home-town Aylesbury, where his form gained the attention of Thame United.

It was there where he really came to notice, scoring 28 goals in one season as the Oxfordshire side won the Hellenic League and re-joined Southern League football six seasons ago, the same time as the Citizens.

From Thame, he joined Harrow Boro and last season and then played alongside Wadkins as the pair formed part of Berko’s title winning squad.

He has also had spells with Chesham United and was with his former teammates at North Leigh, before joining Bedford, scoring eight times in 14 appearances.

Welwyn have also been given a boost as divisional rivals North Leigh, currently second in the standings, announced they would not be eligible for promotion due to their ground not meeting the required standard.

WGC sit 12th but are just nine points behind fifth-placed Ware and have four games in hand.
