The decision to move tonight’s game to Gloucester City FC was a decision that was unfortunately taken out of the club’s hands upon insistence from the National League.

It should be news to no-one that this decision will have a huge effect on the club’s financial situation. Gate revenue is fundamental to the club’s income, which is why the club had not already made the decision to move its home games elsewhere.

We believe the National League has no intention in extending the season, so our fixtures need to be played. The League has requested that we find alternative venues for all remaining home games in the event we are unable to facilitate the fixture due to the condition of the pitch. Club staff and volunteers have been working tirelessly to ensure the pitch is in the best condition it can be for each home game, however, the weather continues to frustrate our efforts.

We are of course thankful to our fans for being so understanding and apologise again for such short notice. Season tickets and any pre-bought tickets will be valid at the game and we hope to see as many of you as possible at Gloucester supporting the team when they need it most.
