Depleted March Town United move Sleaford Town friendly to Tuesday

MARCH Town United have been forced to postpone Saturday’s pre-season friendly with Sleaford Town after they picked up injuries in a 1-0 defeat to Thorney.

The Hares were already looking depleted for the fixture, with absent key players including Stu Anderson, Stu Porter, Tony Brown and Aaron Bailey.

But Adam Sutton (ankle) and Sam Darlow (hamstring) limped off in Tuesday’s match to deepen boss Paul Crosbie’s availability worries. Sean White and Ben Lemmon also look to be struggling for fitness after picking up knocks.

The Sleaford clash has been rearranged for Tuesday at the GER (Kick-off 7.45pm).

The injuries sealed a miserable week for the Hares, who were thumped 8-1 by Wisbech Town in the BKD Cup on Saturday.

Crosbie, who was disappointed with Tuesday’s 1-0 defeat, admitted that he is looking at loaning players in to bolster his squad.

“We were poor,” he said. “I think the lads had the stuffing knocked out of them a bit on Saturday.”
