New dates for Forest Green and Bournemouth matches

Last updated : 06 January 2010 By Jacob Daniel

In what is sure to be the first of many announcements on new dates for Notts fixtures, the FA Cup third round tie with Forest Green Rovers and League Two clash with Bournemouth have been given new dates.

The cup tie with Forest Green Rovers will now take place at Meadow Lane on Tuesday 12th January with a 7:45pm kick off. The match was postponed due to a frozen pitch on Sunday and the winners will host Wigan Athletic in the fourth round. Should the tie require a replay, this is pencilled in for a week later on Tuesday 17th January with a 7:45pm kick off at the New Lawn.

Meanwhile, the League Two trip to AFC Bournemouth has been re-arranged for Tuesday 9th February with a 7:45pm kick-off at Dean Court. The original match was postponed at the last minute before Christmas on a Monday night, angering both Notts' officials and fans. The original clash had been due to be screened live on Sky Sports and an offer of a live clash was offered to Notts for Monday January 15th but was turned down due to it being only 48 hours after the Magpies host Rochdale in League Two.

Keep tuned for more postponements, rearrangements and repostponements in the future on NCM!
