Blaydon had a wasted journey when they made the 450 mile round trip to Stourbridge only to find the pitch frozen and unfit for play.

Before setting off they had been assured by Neil Mitchell, the Stourbridge Coach, that at 8am it was in playable condition. On arrival however there seemed little doubt that the game could not go ahead and both captains agreed to call it off.

A local referee had declared it fit at 4-30 on Friday, but a Blaydon spokesman expressed disappointment that an official inspection had not been made on match day, thereby avoiding the 10 hours of travel and expenses in excess of 800 pounds.

Equally disappointed was the match referee who had made the unnecessary trip up from London.
