Needham Market’s Ryman League play-off match at Tilbury goes ahead tonight

NEEDHAM Market’s delayed Ryman League Division One North play-off semi-final is definitely on at Tilbury tonight.

A pitch inspection had been planned for 11am today, but Tilbury brought it forward and the match will go ahead at the fourth time of asking, kick-off 7.45pm.

The match had been postponed for the last three nights due to the Chadfields pitch being waterlogged.

Needham will be looking to book their place in the final, due to be played on Sunday, against runners-up Enfield Town, who last night beat Tilbury 3-1 on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time.
