Morecambe v Cambridge Off
Cambridge United were due to visit the unseasonably cold North Lancashire seaside today to take on a Morecambe team at the Globe Arena. It`s a long way to travel from Cambridgeshire and the Amber Army would have been encouraged by a posting on Twitter by Morecambe FC earlier this morning which read: "Contrary to the rumor mill, there won't be a pitch inspection and we are game on for today!"
I really hope that not too many U`s fans started off for the north earlier - or that they at least had one eye on their own or Morecambe`s Twitter feed on the way. Because, just over an hour before the game was due to start, the club posted the following update:
SOCIAL MEDIA POST APOLOGY
1 Hour ago (c.1345hrs, 2/4/18)
Morecambe Football Club would like to apologise for an earlier social media post saying today`s SkyBet League 2 fixture versus Cambridge United was definitely on.
The message was constructed by a member of staff with the best intentions but we realise this was an error and we would like to apologise to all Morecambe and Cambridge United supporters for any inconvenience this may have caused.
At 11:00am there were no problems with the pitch, it was only after a heavy downpour from 12 noon onwards that the pitch became unplayable and the referee called the game off.
