This was originally scheduled for Boxing Day 1968 but was postponed, however the original programme was still issued on the rearranged date. The game eventually took place on 30th April when a new programme was issued. We lost 2-1.
The weather decimated the weekend’s football programme. Ours was one of only three league games to survive and the only one not on the South coast to go ahead.
