@swainyFTM: “Should ask another team to play if others are called off.”

@tomderivan73: “Sick of this. Fans messed around again. An automatic forfeit and a 3-0 loss to the side calling it off would put an end to it.”

@ConnorGardner: “Gutted, hopefully it’s the only one that effects us this season. Good but rest for the lads though after Thursday till the next one, make the most of it.”

@Tdal1369: “We’ll just have to doubly stuff Sheff Wed on Thursday night then eh.”
