Dorchester Town manager Leigh Robinson admitted the Merthyr Town 3G surface was “completely unplayable” as Storm Dennis forced postponement of their fixture.
Robinson’s men had arrived at Penydarren Park only to find the Martyrs’ plastic pitch had been waterlogged by a huge downpour.
Large sections of the man-made turf were submerged, with match officials calling the game off around 90 minutes before kick-off.
Discussing the late call, Robinson felt Merthyr had been “overly optimistic” as the Welsh side tried to get the BetVictor South Premier South clash on.
“It was really bad,” he told Echosport. “The pitch was awful.
“When we got here at quarter past one, it was completely unplayable.”
