The chairman of Farsley Celtic has expressed the club’s frustration and disappointment after last night’s FA Trophy replay at Barnet was postponed shortly before kick-off.

The game was called off after the match officials “deemed the surface, in particular the goal-mouths, to be frozen”.

It became the second game at The Hive to be postponed this week after Saturday’s National League clash with Dagenham & Redbridge was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

The Bees apologised for “any inconvenience this late postponement will cause” but Farsley chairman Paul Barthorpe said he would be “pushing for acceptable answers” after what had happened.

In a statement on the club website, Barthorpe said: "On behalf of the club, I can only express our frustration and disappointment at the events that have unfolded tonight. As a semi-professional club we rely on games being played and fixtures fulfilled as the life blood of our existence.

"Our players, staff and supporters, many of whom are self-employed, have had to take days off work for a long midweek away game, sacrificing personal income for their dedication in representing Farsley, and for that we as a club are, and always will be, truly grateful.

"We will once again have to ask them to make this sacrifice, but I can assure our fans, players and all involved that we will be seriously looking into tonight’s events and pushing for acceptable answers."
