The Bostik Premier club were due to play the Kent outfit, but a heavy downpour of snow made the pitch unusable
Wingate & Finchley were forced to postpone their Bostik Premier home match with Tonbridge Angels on Tuesday night due to the cold snap.
Snow began to fall at the Maurice Rebak Stadium around two hours before kick-off, by which point the visitors had already started their journey.
As the weather got progressively worse, the game began to be in doubt and at 6.30pm it was confirmed as off.
Tonbridge’s manager Steve Mckimm made it to Summers Lane along with his squad, but weather was the winner in the end.
