FOOTBALL: Solihull Moors’¬†opening Vanarama National League fixture at Damson Park has been postponed.

The club were due to kick-start their second National League campaign tomorrow afternoon against Chester.

However the home club’s local safety authority decided to call off the game until necessary safety systems are put in place.

The statement read: “Further to a decision of the home club’s local safety authority, it has been necessary for the opening day fixture match between Solihull Moors and Chester to be postponed.

“The Solihull Safety Advisory Group, who oversee the licensing of the stadium, has clarified that spectators cannot be admitted to the ground until such time as required safety systems are in place.

“Arrangements are in hand to urgently deal with this matter, but it is felt the only appropriate decision available to The National League is to postpone the fixture and rearrange it for later in the season.”

The club has no further comment to make at this stage.
