Dean Barker’s excitement towards King Langley’s first home game of the season has been put on hold as the club has had to postpone the fixture vs Hitchin Town FC because of ongoing pitch concerns.

Kings are unbeaten in their opening three away fixtures of the season and were looking forward to the Bank Holiday Monday’s home fixture against their Hertfordshire rivals.

In a statement, the club revealed a trial use of the pitch quickly highlight problems with the playing surface.

It read: “It is with huge disappointment that the club must announce the postponement of Monday’s bank holiday home fixture v Hitchin.

“After trial use of the pitch last night, it quickly became apparent there were concerns about the stability of the playing surface. A further considered view by the main pitch contractor this morning confirmed that the pitch was not playable at this time.

“The club recognises the enormous amount of work put in by everyone in preparation for this fixture but as always with decisions of this nature player safety must remain the paramount concern.

“Remedial work will begin immediately to keep the delay in staging our first home fixture to an absolute minimum.”

Kings play away from home tomorrow against Banbury United. Kick-off at 3pm.
