Poole Town chairman Chris Reeves has spoken of the amount of lost revenue due to recent postponements as ‘concerning’.
The Dolphins were due to face Beaconsfield Town at home, but the game was called off before 10am yesterday due to standing water on the pitch.
Reeves has had the following to say:
Much to the growing frustration of all at the club, tonight’s fixture with Beaconsfield Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch at the Black Gold Stadium.
Inevitably, having not had a home game in over a month, with multiple games postponed, the financial implications are taking on increased effect.
Unprecedented and unwelcome weather is consistently contributing to a concerning amount of lost revenue with most fixtures being moved to Tuesday evenings later on in the season.
With the forecast looking promising at the end of the week, we are hopeful of the Taunton fixture going ahead on Saturday. We wholly understand the frustration of supporters at the moment and not being able to see the side in action, however, we would like to encourage as many supporters down to the Black Gold on Saturday afternoon.
With a bolstered attendance and hopefully a key victory, we would hope that Saturday’s fixture could provide the boost that the club need to kick on, on and off the pitch.
We would like to thank all supporters of this great football club for sticking with us at this difficult time and hope to see you on Saturday.
