A thousand Halifax Town fans will head for Brackley tomorrow (Sunday) to support the Shaymen in the Blue Square North play-off final.

It should be a fantastic day out for the travelling Town contingent - and an unforgettable one if their team can win promotion.

What does the weather hold in store for the big day out in Northamptonshire? Town fans travelling down from Yorkshire will wake to sunny spells and temperatures of around 7C. And they should encounter more bright skies during their journey south, which should remain dry.

The match, though, which kicks off at 3pm, is likely to be played under dark clouds and rainfall with showers forecast to arrive in Brackley at around 2pm and continue through to 7pm, with temperatures a cool 9C.

So, with much of St James’ Park uncovered, fans should be prepared for the wet, chilly conditions.

The journey back north is likely to pass through more spells of rain but, if the Shaymen have booked their spot in the Blue Square Premier, the blue and white army will care little.
