Lincoln City Football Club's home clash with Forest Green Rovers has been confirmed to go ahead.
Despite overnight snowfall, ground staff and volunteers have been working hard at Sincil Bank to clear the pitch in time for the 3pm kick off.
Manager David Holdsworth paid thanks to groundsman Phil Kime, his assistant Paul Ash and everyone who had volunteered to ready the ground in time for the Blue Square Bet Premier fixture.
He said: "A big thank you to everybody who has come down and got their hands cold clearing the pitch of snow in a bid to get today's game on.

"Those of you have come along and helped Phil and Paul have worked tirelessly and it has been wonderful to see the camaraderie out there as the snow was cleared away."
Cancellation of this afternoon's game would have meant The Imps would have faced a month without earning any match-day revenue.
Fans attending this afternoon are reminded that the Stacey West Stand will be closed.
Stacey West Stand season ticketholders will be allowed to use their ticket to access either the Co-op Stand, Echo Stand or Bridge McFarland Stand, for this game only.
Earlier this morning it was announced that Boston United's match with Gloucester City would be postponed due to a frozen pitch.
