A candid Tallentire said after his sides first defeat since November: “The Ardley pitch was frozen and the game should not have even gone ahead.

“My lads did not get changed until five past seven as they thought it would be called off by the ref. We were all surprised when he said the game was on.”

In the Swindon Advertiser Fairford Town boss Gareth Davies pleased with his sides performance after they returned to Hellenic League Division 1 West with a 3-0 win over Easington Sports.

Davies said: “It’s huge that we got the win because the Clanfield game was so disappointing for obvious reasons. The players realised that if they wanted to achieve anything, they can’t afford not to deliver.”
