Club Statement: FA Trophy postponement

  • Men's

The Club would again like to apologise to all the supporters whose time and money was wasted yesterday as a result of the late postponement.

We have been liaising with the competitions department at The FA both last night and today to raise our anger and frustration along with a number of questions regarding yesterday’s events.

Disappointingly we were informed this afternoon that the game must take place at Spennymoor Town next Tuesday 13th March, KO 7:45pm. Furthermore should the game be postponed both clubs have been asked to make provisions for the match to be played on Wednesday 14 March, 7.45pm at Spennymoor Town FC.

The Club strongly oppose the above on the basis we don’t expect the pitch to be playable next week and wish to avoid further financial and logistical nightmares along with a fixture backlog.

We understand The FA have requested further information from Spennymoor and that this information along with Bromley FC’s position on this whole matter will be discussed further by The FA on Friday when we hope to be able to communicate further.

Unfortunately despite all this the above FA directive stands and the game is scheduled for next Tuesday 13th March, KO 7:45pm at Spennymoor Town. The FA will be overseeing the need for any inspections in an attempt to avoid any unnecessary travel.

Our originally scheduled home league match on Tuesday against Barrow will now be rearranged and a new date will be announced shortly.
