Neil Cugley says he is disappointed to miss out on a reunion with old pal Kenny Hill next month after Folkestone Invicta’s Ryman League Division 1 South trip to Kent rivals and joint-leaders Maidstone United has been called off due to the County Town club’s FA Trophy success.
Kent-born former defender Hill, played for Gillingham and Maidstone (twice), before moving to Folkestone in July 1983 and was due to sponsor the match between two of his old clubs.
Cugley (pictured) said: "We have stayed in touch since and I was looking forward to seeing him but the postponement means the game will probably be played in midweek now."
Invicta had a day off last week, with their league match at Leatherhead called off early on Saturday morning, with standing water on the Fetcham Grove pitch the previous day.
Cugley is optimistic about the home game against Burgess Hill on Saturday going ahead – the first of two successive matches at Cheriton Road as Invicta look to build on their 3-1 victory against fellow Sussex side Three Bridges last time out.
