Fleet Town twitter SLAMS referee following Sandhurst Town match postponement

The unofficial Fleet Town twitter account has slammed the match referee’s decision to postpone tonight’s Aldershot Senior Cup Quarter Final tie with Sandhurst Town as ‘pathetic’.

The account – which is independent from the club – had earlier stated the pitch was playable unless there was a significant down poor but the match – due to kick off at 7.45pm – was called off because the referee didn’t believe it would be a ‘good game’.

In the first of two tweets the accound run by ‘Mr Fleet’ called it ‘the most ludicrous decision I have ever seen’.

The match would have been a stern test for the Fizzers two days after a big effort at Binfield in the League Cup. Fleet – 17th in Evo Stik Southern League Division 1 Central and two levels higher were expected to rest players this evening while Sandhurst would have been without captain Harry Oakley who is starting a spell on the sidelines with injury.
