Pompey Pull Out of Friendly

Basingstoke Town FC’s pre-season friendly with Portsmouth, scheduled for 2nd August, has been cancelled.

This is due a shortage of players at the Championship Club and the proximity of their opening game in the NPower Championship later that week.

This is a disappointment for Town as the fixture was well attended last season, and both Club and fans were looking forward to their visit.

Discussions are currently taking place to try and find a replacement; however at this stage of pre-season most Clubs will have fixtures in place so this will not be an easy task.
