FC Halifax Town’s game against Chester on Tuesday has been postponed until April 25, leaving The Shaymen with 12 games in 27 days next month.

The game was called off after heavy snow in Calderdale over the weekend, but the rearrangement has left Town with three games a week every week in April, in what promises to be a frenetic schedule.

They play Bradford Park Avenue on Monday, April 1 before facing Guiseley on Wednesday, April 3 and Altrincham on Saturday, April 6.

The following week, Town play Bishop’s Stortford, Corby and Boston United before facing Oxford City, Harrogate and Guiseley again the week after.

The rearranged game against Chester has been squeezed in between trips to Altrincham and Stalybridge at the end of the month.

Town’s next match is away to Workington on Saturday (3pm kick-off).
