Development Squad match postponed

West Ham United's Development Squad will have to wait a little longer to start their Barclays U21 Premier League Elite Group Stage campaign after Friday's home fixture with Liverpool was postponed.

A pitch inspection at Rush Green at 12.30pm on Thursday found the playing surface frozen and, with the Reds set to travel down on Thursday afternoon and heavy snow forecast for the east of England on Friday, the decision was taken to call the game off.

A new date for the Liverpool fixture will be confirmed soon.

Nick Haycock's side also saw their scheduled opening match of the season at Manchester United postponed hours ahead of kick-off on Monday. That fixture will now be played on Wednesday 6 March, with kick-off at Altrincham FC at 7pm.

The Development Squad are now set to start the Elite Group Stage with an away game at Arsenal on the afternoon on Monday 28 January, when kick-off at London Colney will be at 1pm.
