Radstock Town have been fined and deducted three points for causing their match with Ilfracombe to be postponed.

The game, which should have been played on Saturday, November 30, will now go ahead at a date TBC.

The game was initially postponed when the Toolstation Western League allowed Radstock time to ‘re-group’ after the departure of their manager and a number of first-team players the week before the match, before Ilfracombe lodged an official complaint.

Ilfracombe chairman Matthew Hayne said the club were ‘satisfied with the decision’.

“As a chairman and as a board we all wanted the game to be played because we are in the business of playing competitive football and we were planning on a lucrative Saturday afternoon,” he said.

“We were disappointed that the game didn’t go ahead and this was the basis of the complaint – we felt that they didn’t explore all avenues to try to raise a side and obviously the league has come to the same conclusion.”
