Raleigh testimonial match cancelled due to rain

Another one bites the dust. Unfortunately, the blanket of heavy rain currently over the United Kingdom has caused another match to be called off. This time it’s Wakefield against Huddersfield – Andy Raleigh’s testimonial match.

The Giants said in a statement: “This afternoon’s trial game against Wakefield Wildcats at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium has been called off due to a waterlogged pitch.”

Wakefield said: “Following a pitch inspection at 11.45am by the referee, the pitch was deemed unplayable.

“Supporters who have purchased tickets will be able to get a full refund from either the Ridings Centre Store or Stadium Box Office from Monday morning.”
