STRATFORD Town will be hoping to return to action on Tuesday night when they are scheduled to travel to Cinderford Town in a rearranged game, kick-off 7.45pm.
Carl Adams’ side had another blank day on Saturday when heavy overnight rain caused the postponement of their home game with Mangotsfield United. That followed two previous home postponements since the last game at the DCS Stadium against Evesham United on Boxing Day.
But more rain forecast could put the Cinderford game in doubt. The original fixture between the two clubs was postponed back on New Year’s Day.
Town won the Senior Team of the Year award at last Friday’s Stratford District Council Celebration of Sport 2014, which recognised the club’s achievement in winning the Midland Alliance championship last season. Adams was also runner-up in the Coach of the Year award.
Adams told the Herald: “It was nice to be recognised at the awards night after all that has happened at the club. I think that last season’s efforts really put Stratford on the football map.
“I was pleased to be a finalist in my own right but winning the team award is an accolade for everyone who works so hard at the football club.”
On Saturday’s events Adams added: “It’s frustrating to see games postponed because we are really firing at the moment - but the pitch was just unplayable after all the rain. On the positive side it means that Mangotsfield will have to travel to us on a Tuesday night now which won’t be easy for them.”
