STOURBRIDGE chairman Andy Pountney says the club are considering withdrawing from the Southern League Central play-offs over the postponement fiasco.

The game against Alvechurch, which was due to take place at the War Memorial Ground tonight (Wednesday), has now been officially called off.

The clash had been hanging in the balance since the league postponed the second semi-final between King's Lynn and Stratford.

That game was put on hold due to an FA enquiry into Stratford Town allegedly fielding an ineligible players this season.

The league believed it would be in the interest of fairness that both games take place at the same time and so ordered the Stour game with Church to also be postponed.

However, due to the Glassboys having to share the War memorial Ground with the town's cricket club, it means their home advantage is now under jeopardy.

Pountney has said he's "disgusted" with the "outrageous" decision and that the club are now considering if to withdraw from the competition altogether.

He said: "We were informed yesterday lunch time by the Southern League that the game should be postponed on the grounds of the best interest and fairness.

"We are disgusted at this decision and have been in several hours of discussions with league concerning this matter

"We have been informed that they would like us to play the fixture on the same day as the other semi-final, citing unfair advantage to the teams if they play sooner than the other semi-finalists.

"The outrageous decision that has been made, clearly jeopardises whether we can play the fixture at the War Memorial Athletic Ground, due to us ground-sharing with the cricket club.

"The league rules clearly state the fixture should be played tonight and with the league announcing the postponement of tonight’s fixture they have clearly broken their own rules.

"We are still discussing with the league as to when the fixture is to be played, given the unreasonable situation we have been put in. We are also considering whether to withdraw from the play-offs altogether in disgust of the decision that has been taken and the way this situation has been handled by the appropriate bodies."
