Monday's Barclays U21 Premier League Elite Group Stage match between Manchester United and West Ham United has been postponed because of a waterlogged pitch.

The wintry weather has put paid to the Hammers' hopes of kicking off the Barclays Under-21 Premier League Elite Group Stage with a victory on Monday night.

A 3pm pitch inspection at Altrincham FC's Moss Lane ground found a large amount of water on the playing surface, which was deemed unplayable by the match officials, leaving them no option but to call the game off.

whufc.com will post details of the rearranged fixture when available but the next outing for Nick Haycock's side is scheduled for Friday evening, when Liverpool will visit Rush Green for a 7pm kick-off.
