Saffron Walden Town are offering supporters the chance to ‘pay what they want’ when they welcome Haverhill Rovers to Catons Lane on Boxing Day.

The Bloods saw their Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier Division home match against Stanway Rovers fall victim to a frozen pitch on Saturday, with the fixture rescheduled for Tuesday, January 30.

But they will be hoping to get the chance to travel to bottom club Wivenhoe Town this weekend, although the reserves saw their own fixture at the GMP Plant Hire Stadium called off last weekend due to a frozen pitch.

Stuart Wardley’s first team are then set for their big home match against Haverhill on December 26, which kicks off at 12pm.

And Town chairman Jonathan Scripps said: “It’s a huge Christmas derby match. We have played Haverhill on Boxing Day for the last three seasons in a row and the atmosphere is always great.”
