Pike sees positives amid Borough’s misfortune

Have your say

Paul Proctor has shrugged off fears of a fixture backlog at Cams Alders.

The Fareham Town secretary has seen games against New Milton Town and Blackfield & Langley called off in the past week.

But he reckons there is plenty of scope for the Reds to catch up.

‘Fortunately, we are pretty much up to date with our fixtures and have a few blank midweek dates to fit any extra matches in,’ said Proctor.

‘In fact, provided we have a dry spell we can get down to Romsey tomorrow night to get one of our four remaining away matches done and dusted.

‘And then we just hope our games at Newport and home to AFC Portchester go ahead over the Easter period.’

Fareham’s home clash with New Milton Town was called off by referee Conor Farrell at 10am on Saturday.

Farrell said: ‘It didn’t take me long as the condition of the pitch would have made it difficult and dangerous. I had no alternative.’

In the Southern League premier division, Gosport Borough’s clash with Frome Towm was called off.

Bognor’s trip to Harrow in Ryman premier was also scuppered, while Horndean were the only side to see action in the Wessex League premier division.
