Aylesbury FC chairman Danny Martone admits he is ‘gutted’ after club’s big match against League Two Oxford – which was due to take place on Wednesday night – is cancelled due to the wet weather.

The game, which was likely to attract a decent crowd at the Affinity Stadium, was set to be new boss Craig Faulconbridge’s first in charge of FC.

Speaking on Wednesday morning, Martone also conceded there was no chance of the match rearranged.

“It’s gutting really, and it can’t be rearranged because Oxford are off to America this week for pre-season,” he said.

“The pitch hasn’t got any visible water on it but near the dugouts you can see it has. The thing is, if we play on it now, we’ll cut it up for the rest of the season.”

The frustrated chairman did reveal that a replacement fixture has been arranged away at Chinnor on Thursday night (7.45pm kick off).

With more rain falling today (Wednesday) the Moles chief also admitted there are also question marks over Saturday’s home friendly against Maidenhead.
