Another washout leaves Buckland looking for a Cadbury sweetener
BUCKLAND Athletic were handed further fixture issues in the Western League when their fixture at Bitton on Saturday was postponed.
The Rapid Solicitors Ground was deemed unplayable and consequently leaves Buckland up to 10 games behind other teams in the league.
Antony Lynch's side still have 25 league matches to play and also are still competing in two Cup competitions; The Les Phillips Cup and The St Lukes Bowl.
Buckland were scheduled to play Torquay United last night in the Devon competition, but after Homers Heath was waterlogged on Saturday, the weather was always going to determine if this fixture went ahead.

League fixtures will then hopefully take place at Homers Heath once more and highflyers Cadbury Heath will make their way down from Bristol to visit the league new boys (3pm).
Heath inflicted Buckland's heaviest defeat to date back in September.
A hat-trick from Matt Huxley alongside single goals from Nick Dyer, Sacha Tong and Joe Chandler gave their team a comfortable 3 points. Liam Moseley scored a consolation goal for Buckland to end the scoring at 6-1.
Since then the Bristol side have collected 22 from a possible 33 points and currently sit in second place.
Antony Lynch knows it will be a tough game however Buckland's impressive home form hopes to prove superior.
Lynch hopes to have a full squad to select from on Saturday and will soon have Jamie Micklewright to add to selection but is still awaiting transfer clearance from Barnstaple Town after he was earlier released from Exeter City.
