Originally planned for Frenchfields, the decision has been taken to move it to west Cumbria because of the state of the Penrith pitch.

Recent heavy rain has left the Northern League side with concerns over the surface if they were to continue playing before official fixtures start again.

Even without the Covid-19 restrictions Reds would not have had a League fixture this Saturday as they were the odd team out having been programmed to host Droylsden who resigned in the summer.

Reds, who would have had another competitive game on Tuesday had they been successful last night, are now intent on playing friendlies against clubs in the relevant government tier.

With no FA Trophy tie on Tuesday, following the 3-1 defeat at Nantwich, manager Danny Grainger will look for a home friendly, possibly against Cleator Moor Celtic.

There’s also a strong possibility that Reds will arrange an attractive home friendly against a NPL Premier Division side on December 19.

They should have been at Brighouse on that day but the League have confirmed that those fixtures will not now take place.

“At the moment the next fixture is Boxing Day at Dunstan but obviously that can change. As far as we are concerned it’s about keeping ourselves fit and ticking over. I’m hoping that we will be able to enough teams prepared to play,” said manager Danny Grainger.

*Nantwich Town, who beat Reds 3-1 last night in the FA Trophy will travel to the winners of Witton Albion and Bamber Bridge in the second round. Reds will have to settle for a £1,000 cheque as first round losers.
