THE Beast from the East has ended any chances of Forest Green's match at Crewe Alexandra take part.

Mark Cooper's side were set to travel to Cheshire on Friday, but the heavy snowfall over the last two days across much of the country has meant that the pitch is frozen and will be unplayable.

Tickets that have already been purchased for the game can be used for the rearranged date.

The club can confirm that tickets and travel will be refunded for those who are unable to make the rearranged fixture.
