Cheddar’s season was again forced to a further stop-start situation when their match at Wincanton was called off on Saturday morning, meaning the second time in three games that their League match had faced a late postponement thanks to the wintry weather!
Manager Shaun Potter speaking with the club’s website said:
“It’s a frustrating time having games postponed every week as we are desperate to get out there and get a winning run together. The backlog of fixtures we are going to get between now and the end of the season isn’t ideal but we will aim to use this to our advantage, playing games in quick succession will benefit us when trying to go on a run and we are also hoping that the pitches improve between now and the end of the season which also benefits us with the way we play The lads are itching to get these games played and are more determined than ever to climb the table. Hopefully our game next Saturday will be on and we can get going again”
The Cheesemen’s next game is scheduled to be on Saturday (27th January) at Malmesbury Victoria, kick off 3.00pm, and they are due to return to return to home soil where they are to play Warminster Town on Tuesday night (30th January) in a league match, kindly sponsored by Roosters Country and Western Music Club, kick off 7.45pm.
Cheddar’s Reserve team were also without a match at the weekend but are due to host Chew Magna on Saturday, kick off 3pm. The club’s ‘A’ team’s match was also called off on Saturday at Sporting Weston, but the team are due to be back in action on Saturday when they travel to FC Milton.
Cheddar’s Under 18s team also faced a postponement when their scheduled match at home on Tuesday night (23rd January) also fell victim to the weather conditions.
Meanwhile, Cheddar’s match at Wincanton Town has been re-arranged for Tuesday 13th March, kick off 7.30pm.
