An Explanation Needed!

I Note With Interest On Grimsby Towns Twitter Feed That They Are Saying Tickets Still Available Online For Their Away Match At Woking This Evening.
That’s A 232 Mile Trip From Lincolnshire To Woking On A Tuesday Night Yet Apparently Hayes&Yeading Cant Manage A 9Mile Trip To Earlsmead.
This Just Isn’t Good Enough And The Kind Of Thing That Can Alienate Fans For The Future.
The Southern League And The Isthmian League Must Get A Grip Of This Situation And Order Teams To Play If At All Necessary.
Any Business That’s Takes It’s Customers Or In Our Case Fans For Granted With Little Or No Communication Is At Risk Of Failing When Fans Decide Not To Come Anymore.

There's a difference here - Grimsby Town are a professional club, and their players won't have a separate day job.

Sorry But The Principle Is The Same.
Hayes&Yeading Should Not Have Asked This Game To Be Called Off.
I Think The Real Reason Is They Don’t Fancy Playing Us At The Moment And The Same Maybe The Case With Marlow Saturday.

Does that mean that Chesham don't fancy playing Hendon tonight, or that Farnborough don't fancy the short trip to Met Police, or Yate don't fancy the idea of going to Taunton, or Walton Casuals don't fancy a trip to Kings Langley?

How about Enfield Town? I take it they don't fancy a trip to Bishop's Stortford, Leatherhead don't want to go to Bognor Regis, Hornchurch don't want to go to Folkestone, Carshalton to Lewes, East Thurrock to Margate or Merstham to Worthing either?

What about Basingstoke not wanting to go to Staines Town, or Tooting to South Park, Sutton Common Rovers to Hanwell Town or Binfield to Ashford Town (Middx).

Is it the same for Hythe Town not wanting to go to Faversham Town or Ashford United to Hastings United, Ramsgate to Herne Bay, Whitstable to Sittingbourne, Burgess Hill to Whitehawk?

What on earth does that have to do with most games at Step 3 and Step 4 being postponed due to the panic buying of fuel?

Question Is Why Are These Matches Postponed.
The Trains And Buses Running.

The matches are being postponed because players/officials and maybe even match officials are unable to get to games because of the fuel situation. As I have pointed out, not everyone works or lives near public transport, particularly public transport that runs late into the evening if based outside of London.

Your Making Some Fair Points NL Fan.
I Think Though Where Their Is Good Public Transport As We Have In The Greater London Area That Everyone Must Make An Effort To Play Matches Where Possible.
Good To Have Your Constructive Views On Our Forum.

I agree it is disappointing but I suppose "it is what it is " as they say .

Although it does make me wonder if we are all made of different stuff nowadays.

How on earth football continued in WW2 with the Wartime Regional Cups and Leagues while the Blitz was going on I'll never know . Incredibly stoic people then, and we've struggled with Covid and now a "fuel crisis "

It does make me wonder.

Agreed Earlsmead Timer.
Thank God We Had Those Brave Men And Women During Those 2 World Wars Who Rolled Up Their Sleeves And Got On With It.
The People Who Run Non League Football And Those Within It Need To Show A Far More “Can Do” Attitude And Better Leadership.

Any Wealdstone supporters lurking on here might be able to confirm
But I am sure my uncle told me, a Wealdstone player back in the post war years missed the team bus to Hayes. He ran there & got to the ground before half time & played the 2nd half !
Yes they were definitely made of different stuff back then.

Very disappointing to have to postpone what potentially would have been a great game with two teams in great form.

As much as Hayes might not have wanted to play us (doubtful), we also might be better off not playing them now. Perhaps down the line when their form is a little more unsure may be better for us.

Plus it gives us more chance to rest ahead of Marlow and stop them potentially scouting/analysing us this evening.

Hello HarrowRed.But Surely It’s Hayes & Yeading Who Don’t Want To Play Us That’s Why They Asked The Southern League To Postpone Without Any Good Reason.
As For Marlow Well They Can Look On You Tube At Our Recent Games And I Suggest That They Should Be Worried!

With the best will in the world, Terrance, Hayes & Yeading have only just dropped their first points of the campaign against a stubborn and well-organised Met Police side. They've just hammered Tonbridge Angels 5-0 in the FA Cup and are largely scoring goals for fun. Whilst I recognise Harrow's excellent form at the moment, I don't think they're a side to be running scared of anyone in our division, nor, quite frankly having witnessed them at first hand this season, the division above!

Hello John.Nice As Always To Have A Hendon View On Our Forum.
Well I Think We Would Have Beaten Hayes & Yeading This Evening.
I Would Like Them To Give Us A Reason For Them Not Wanting To Fulfil The Fixture At Earlsmead This Evening When There’s Ample Transport Available.
In My View We Should Be Awarded The 3 Points!
