Well this is a bit unusual. Vanarama National League side Maidenhead United have moved their fixture with Havant & Waterlooville back three days due to international call ups.

Three players, James Comley, Adrian Clifton and Dean Mason have been called up to the Montserrat side to play in a CONCACAF Nations League fixture away to the Cayman Islands on Friday 22nd March.

The Magpies were due to host Havant on Saturday 23rd March but that fixture will now take place three days later on Tuesday evening.

The trio have played in all three of Montserrat’s Nations League fixtures so far including a 2-1 defeat at home to El Salvador, a 1-0 win at home to Belize and a 2-0 win in Aruba.

Mason has eight Montserrat caps according to WorldFootball.net, Comley has five and Clifton four.

A statement on the Maidenhead United website thanked the league and Havant for allowing the switch: “Any pre-purchased tickets for the original fixture or for hospitality will be valid at the rearranged fixture.

“Maidenhead United would like to thank Havant & Waterlooville FC and the National League for their understanding in agreeing this fixture move and we look forward to welcoming both sets of supporters to York Road on Tuesday 26th March.”

In November, the Magpies home fixture with Harrogate Town had been moved for the same reason. National League rules allow a game to be postponed if three or more players are on international duty.
