Banbury United’s trip to Poole Town today (Saturday) has been cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch following heavy overnight rain.

The Puritans were due to face their third consecutive Evo-Stik Southern League fixture against a top four side on the back of four points from their previous two outings.

The Boxing Day victory at Cirencester Town was followed by a stalemate with Redditch United in the New Year’s Day premier division clash at Spencer Stadium.

Manager Paul Davis will now have a full week to prepare his squad for next Saturday’s six-pointer against Frome, who beat Histon on Saturday.
