Lynn had embarked on the 340-mile circuit earlier in the afternoon after her hosts told the National League North game that the field was playable. At 6.30 p.m., however, the game was stopped because there was water on the playing area. In a tweet from her official site, Gloucester said, "Sorry to everyone who went to the game tonight.
The day before, we were told the place needed no further testing." Stephen Cleeve, the owner of Linnets, said: "It could be dangerous. But you have to ask yourself why the game didn't stop at 2pm. Apparently, today the viewing of the pitch was at 10.30am instead of 12pm. At 10.30am am it playable, it rained at 12 o'clock, at 2 o'clock it was unplayable and it should have been canceled. "It's really not fair for the boys because they took the day off and it got a bit flat." Lynn will host Bradford Park Avenue on Saturday.
