Torquay United v Northampton Town OFF
TORQUAY United'S match against Northampton at Plainmoor on Saturday afternoon was called off after a 10am pitch inspection. Referee Mike Naylor from Yorkshire decided that the pitch was unplayable, with two particularly bad areas in front of Bristow's Bench and in the corner between the Pop Side and the Family Stand. A Plainmoor spokesman said the ground staff had worked hard on the pitch, but it was in a worse condition than it had been before the recent Morecambe match.
Cobblers seal Hurst loan deal
Northampton have completed the signing of defender James Hurst from Crawley on a one-month loan deal. Hurst came through the youth ranks at West Brom before signing a professional contract with Portsmouth but never played first-team football. After a short stint with Icelandic team Valur, Hurst returned to West Brom but managed just one appearance in the Premier League.
