Cup Weekend Cancelled - Grays Turn Out The Lights

Cup Weekend Cancelled - Grays Turn Out The Lights

Next weekend will be empty for the Railwaymen as the FA Cup 1st Round replay between Grays and Carlisle was abandoned.

The winner of tie was was due to play Dario Gradi's (!) men on the weekend of the 29/30th November. However, with Grays 1-0 up against the League One last night the floodlights failed. After 20 minutes of trying to change the light bulb (I presume) the match was abandoned.

The game is now due to be played on the 29th November, the day of the 2nd Round games. It will come as a blow to Crewe who will be looking to avoid any fixture congestion whilst fans will also be hit hard with the 2nd Round now due to be played mid-week in December - not the best of times to be traveling up to Carlisle or down to Grays.

The match was also a possibility to be shown live on TV.
