Chester FC's CEO Mark Maguire has expressed his ‘anger’ at their opening day match at Solihull Moors being postponed with just 24 hours notice.
Solihull’s Damson Park stadium was deemed ‘unsafe’ by the Solihull Safety Advisory Group after a review of the ground’s safety procedures, with Chester being informed of the decision via a phone call from Solihull on Friday morning.
Maguire made attempts to make alternative arrangements to allow the fixture to take place but an executive decision was taken to postpone the fixture.
“My main emotion is anger,” Maguire said.
“Anger for our supporters who had been looking forward to this fixture for months, who had booked train tickets, match tickets, time off work and spent good money in order to go to Solihull."
Explaining the process in which the postponement had come about, Maguire described the day as a ‘calamity’
