Rushden's FA Trophy first-round replay against Eastwood Town tonight was postponed following the death of goalkeeper Dale Roberts.

The 24-year-old joined from Nottingham Forest in January 2009 and was an England C international.

Chairman Gary Calder said in a statement: "It is with great sadness that this afternoon our England C goalkeeper Dale Roberts passed away. Our thoughts and prayers at this time go to his parents, family and friends."
