Discussions with Oldham over a venue for the 2014 Law Cup have ground to a holt, as Hornets CEO Ryan Bradley Explains:
'With our season starting in February, I contacted Chris to explain that, following discussions with the coaches and board, we didnt believe Whitebank in January was a viable option.
We have had numerous issues there in our last visits, both in terms of playing surface, changing facilities and spectator facilities.
We offered Spotland as a viable alternative, or asked if Oldham would like to play anywhere else, but Chris made it clear that unless we played at Whitebank the game wouldnt be going ahead.
We took the decision, with the backing of the board, players and coaching staff, that we would therefore not accept Oldhams invitation to play the Law Cup this year.
Shan't miss it, now way would I go to Whitebank again.
