HUNGERFORD TOWN’S game at Histon was washed out on Saturday morning after heavy overnight rain left the Cambridgeshire pitch unplayable.

An early inspection save Hungerford from travelling, but they now face another lengthy midweek trip to follow Tuesday’s game at Kings Lynn on the Norfolk coast, and are likely to return to Histon on Tuesday, April 19.

It means that Hungerford had to sit out a busy weekend while their promotion rivals go into action. “It means they can get ahead of us and we have to catch up again,” said manager Bobby Wilkinson.

That was the case as Kettering Town won 3-0 at Chesham, Redditch hammered Dorchester 5-1 on their own patch and Leamington beat Paulton Rovers, all to knock Hungerford out of the top five.
