Do the SC still have insurance to cover what fans have paid on travel, in the event of a game being called off at late notice?
No we don't. Haven't had it for many years now as the insurance premium became too prohibitive to warrant the cost

Only positive I can think of from the postponement is we didn't pick up any more injuries.

Yes and hopefully Wheater is closer to making a return. 3 home games coming up Spennymoor, Southport and Telford, so this would be a great time to get back to winning ways at home. Imagine the boost it would give us to collect 9 points from these matches. That has to be the target.

Banbury's "perfectly playable" pitch is still frozen and tonight's Trophy match is off again. It's made their manager look a complete clown for saying "no problems" with the pitch on Saturday. That's FOUR postponements in just over a week. They should never have dragged our players and fans all the way down there when the pitch was clearly unfit... and it's still so several days later.

Again! The next round of the fa trophy is a couple of weeks away so this needs playing asap. Is there a maximum number of times a tie can be called off before it gets reversed or goes to a neutral ground i wonder

I don't think a couple of hundred darlo fans who were down there for a game that was never gonna go ahead on Saturday would give a flying feck if Banbury were just chucked out.

Me neither. Rather Coalville get a bye to the next round
