We can confirm that the friendly with Leyton Orient, which was due to be played at The Beveree on Saturday, July 22, has been cancelled.
A club spokesman said: “It’s disappointing that we’ve had to make a change at such short notice.
“We’re sure all supporters will sympathise with what Orient fans have suffered in recent times. The club’s new owners will have had a lot to tidy up since the takeover, but it’s clearly unacceptable for us to be offered a youth team as our opponents for this fixture.
“Orient are now just one division above us and we need a more appropriate challenge ahead of our National League South programme.”
It’s understood that Dowse and Martin Tyler are using their contacts to try to replace the fixture with one against a Championship club’s younger players.
We will obviously let you have details as soon as they are confirmed.
