According to District 9 football chairman Bob Tonkin, the move was made necessary by the fact the field at Bradford’s Parkway Field is expected to be unplayable.
“They have been told by the turf company not to plow the field because of the new turf that was just installed,” Tonkin said. “With the current weather and the anticipation of new snow in Bradford, we needed to make the decision to move the game.”
