Feckenham facing a mounting fixture backlog

Liam Moakes 19th Dec, 2019

FECKENHAM head coach Tom Davies said the Millers could do nothing more than continue to train hard as they endure more frustrations with the weather.

Saturday’s scheduled visit of Hampton in Midland League Division Two was the latest fixture to fall foul of the prolonged wet spell and this Saturday’s trip to Knowle is also in severe jeopardy.

Davies said: “It’s obviously frustrating for everyone involved when competitive games are postponed but, as we’ve always done, we’ve got our heads down and worked hard at training.

“The lads understand the importance of getting together, putting the graft in and maintaining their quality. They’re champing at the bit to get games on, get playing, put a run together and build on the positive start we’ve made.

“On Saturday, weather permitting we’re due to make the trip over to Knowle, who Clive Seeley has flying at the minute. We’ll prepare like we usually do and the boys are aware we’ll be in for a real battle on what could potentially be a heavy pitch.”

Fifth-placed Feckenham – five points behind second-placed Knowle with four games in hand – are due to visit Fairfield Villa on Boxing Day (11.30am).
