Bostik Premier: Wingate & Finchley A Billericay Town A

Wingate & Finchley’s Bostik Premier game with Billericay Town was abandoned midway through the first half last night.

The Beast from the East saw most other non-league games in local proximity called off, but the Maurice Rebak Stadium pitch survived a 2pm inspection.

Despite play getting underway, eventually the minus temperatures forced the game to be abandoned with the safety of the players, officials and staff coming first.

Even though only 21 minutes of action occurred before the referee brought players off and called the game to a halt, plenty of chances had been created.

Wingate went close in the eighth minute, but Reece Beckles-Richards fired wide and five minutes later Marc Charles-Smith headed an opportunity wide.

More chances occurred and Sam Deering should have put Billericay one up when Jake Robinson squared for him in the 16th minute, but he failed to hit the target.

Robinson also missed a later opportunity before the referee abandoned the game to leave Town in first place and Wingate in eighth.

Wingate & Finchley: Gore; Ifil, Humphrey, Eales, Eadie; Rifat, Moncur; Obafemi, Tejan-Sie, Beckles-Richards; Charles-Smith.

Unused substitutes: Rapai, Laney, Williams, Pattie, Akiotu.

Billericay Town: Julian; Evans, Kizzi, Inman, Urquhart; Hughes, Deering, Waldren; Robinson, Bricknell, Butcher.

Unused substitutes: Wheeler, Cinnington, Paine, Rooney, Giddens.
