Aylesbury FC boss Steve Bateman admitted he was surprised to see last week’s games called off and is hoping for some game time today (Saturday) at Chalfont.

Bateman said he was ‘surprised’ at the postponement of last Saturday’s Calor League game at home to Potters Bar Town.

The match was called off five hours before kick-off despite the best efforts of a working party on Friday night to make the Haywood Way pitch playable.

That was followed by the cancellation of Tuesday night’s local derby at Leighton and Bateman said: “I was surprised when I heard the game was not going to be able to go ahead.

“It (vs Potters Bar at home) was because there was an area of the pitch by the dugouts which was still dangerous.

“A youth game was played on the pitch on Sunday so if we had been given another 24 hours we could have got the game on.”
