DUE to the adverse weather conditions and safety concerns, Tuesday’s official opening ceremony at Thame United’s new Meadow View Park stadium and the match against Oxford United have been postponed until January.

The club was all set to officially declare their new ground, which was used for the first time last week, open with a prestige match against loftier neighbours Oxford United on Tuesday night.

But the heavy snowfall has put paid to those plans and a new date will be announced early in the new year.

A club spokesman said: “May I take this opportunity on behalf of Thame Football Partnership to wish you all a great Xmas and Happy New Year and we look forward to seeing you in 2011.”
