THE annual pre-season Nailsworth derby between Shortwood United and Forest Green Rovers, scheduled for this afternoon, has been cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch at Meadowbank Stadium.

Overnight storms and heavy rain this morning have left the  playing surface unplayable and roads impassable.

Shortwood and Forest Green are hopeful an arrangment can be reached to fit the fixture into their respective pre-season schedules.

Shortwood will lose around £3,000 in lost revenue from the fixture.
