THE new date for the second Worcester Derby of the season has been confirmed.

Worcester City were due to host Worcester Raiders at Claines Lane on Boxing Day, but the game was postponed after the waterlogged pitch failed an inspection.

The game is one of several matches rescheduled due to postponements in recent weeks. 

City will now face Raiders at Claines on Tuesday 5 March at 7.45pm, where the hosts will be looking to do a league double over their Worcester rivals.

Elsewhere, the home Hellenic League Premier fixture against Mangotsfield Town - scheduled for Tuesday January 9 - has been moved to Tuesday March 19 due to Mangotsfield's progression in the Gloucestershire County Cup.

The home game scheduled for Tuesday January 16 against Roman Glass has been moved due to the recent postponement of the league cup tie against Cheltenham Saracens, which takes its place.

Roman Glass will now visit Claines Lane on Tuesday March 12, 2024 at 7.45pm.

Away from home, the clash at Brimscombe & Thrupp, which was postponed due to The FA Vase, will now take place on Saturday March 23, 2024 at 3pm.

City have also been drawn away in the Marsh Challenge Cup to face Pershore Town, the tie will be played on Tuesday January 23, 2024 at 7.45pm.
