Long 'Disappointed' At Postponement

Alvechurch managerr Ian Long has said he was disappointed that yesterday's game with Hereford had to be postponed. The game will now be played on Thursday April 7th.
“I am really disappointed that the game didn’t go ahead," Long told the Droitwich Advertiser

“I can understand why the referee made the decision he did, but if he had inspected it later the pitch may well have passed.

“There was rain overnight, but the weather had dried up in the morning and if he had checked it at noon it would have been a different story.

“I can understand he has to weigh up people travelling from Hereford, but I would have loved the game to be played.
“We had all put a long of time and effort in and it was a shame for the game not to be on.” 

The paper also confirms that Avlechurch were 'keen' for the game to have been played in the week commencing May 2nd which would have meant an extension to the season.
