Antony Sweeney has admitted his disappointment for the
players and the fans following the postponement of Saturday's FA Cup tie at
Referee Peter Gibbons carried out a 1.30pm inspection of theplaying surface at Huish Park, after which he decided to call the game off.
“I understand that the referee has a difficult decision,”Sweeney told Pools TV.
“The pitch is quite wet and there is standing water in one
of the goal areas where the ball isn't bouncing but I'm pretty sure I have played
in worse and I know the lads would have preferred to get the game on and donedusted today.
“It's an uncontrollable for us though so we just have tosuck it up and get on with it.
“We're disappointed for the fans,” he added.
“We've got the luxury of travelling on a coach and having an
overnight stay in a hotel and we're upset that it's a wasted journey but a lotof the fans will have come this morning in the car.
“We appreciate their support and we're disappointed that
there isn't any football being played but hopefully when the game isre-arranged we can reward them by advancing through to the next round.”
The First Round tie has now been re-arranged for Tuesday 12th November (7.45pm kick-off).#
