The EVO-STIK League is putting special measures in place ahead of this weekend's action to avoid any unnecessary travel and inconvenience for fans, players and officials with more severe winter weather forecast.
With freezing temperatures and snow blanketing much of the UK and more expected before Saturday's full programme, Northern Premier League secretary Angie Firth authorised early pitch inspections on Friday in an email to the secretaries at all 68 clubs confirming a number of other special measures to help ease disruption.
Clubs were put on alert for a third time this season on Thursday afternoon after the Met Office issued a number of Yellow and Red weather warnings from Scotland to the South West over the next 48 hours.
For the latest news on match inspections and confirmed postponements, fans, players and officials should check for updates on the fixtures pages available via the home page and log on to the EVO-STIK League's social media channels.
