Postponed games mounting up

Newport Pagnell Town footballers were left frustrated once more as another game of theirs was postponed.

Saturday’s trip to Desborough was called off as a result of a waterlogged pitch at the S6 Stadium.

And it’s the fifth time it has happened to the Swans in their last seven fixtures, meaning they’ve played just twice since Boxing Day.

However, Newport have still played more games than most of their UCL Premier Division counter-parts.

Newport now have a week off, and are next in action on Saturday March 1 against AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

Division One side Olney Town too suffered a similar fate, as their game against St Neots Town Saints went the way of the water.

Stony Stratford Town have been limited to just two games in 2014, and now find themselves second from bottom of Spartan Midlands Division 1.

Tuesday night’s fixture with Langford was postponed because of a waterlogged pitch, but the games are beginning to mount up.

As it stands, Stony will have to play eight games in 25 days during March, and April is beginning to fill up too.

Division 2 side New Bradwell St Peter were one of the few teams in the area to actually get a game on, and the hard work put in by the ground staff certainly paid off as they beat Grendon Rangers 2-1 on Tuesday night.

The result means they remain in 10th place in Division 2, but have played three more games than neighbours, and 11th place side Old Bradwell.

St Peter are set to take on league leaders Kent Athletic on Saturday, Old Bradwell face Pitstone and Wolverton play Grendon.
