Football fans who turned up to Buckley Town FC’s stadium yesterday expecting to see the Wales U19 v Scotland U19 game were left disappointed after the fixture was switched at short notice to venue in Wrexham.

The game was due to take place on Thursday at The Globe in Buckley.

Buckley Town FC had heavily advertised the fixture for weeks.

The match was part of Cymru Under-19’s preparations for their UEFA European U19 qualifying campaign, which is set to begin later this year. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

However, due to recent weather conditions, the Football Association of Wales (FAW) decided to move the match to Colliers Park and play it behind closed doors.

The decision was made on Tuesday, leaving the club with little time to inform supporters.

In a statement, Buckley Town FC expressed their regret for the situation, stating: “On behalf of everyone at the Club we’d like to apologise to the folks who called, messaged, emailed and/or turned up at The Globe yesterday, expecting to see Wales U19 V Scotland U19.”

The statement also acknowledged the efforts made by the club to inform supporters of the change in venue, but admitted that with such short notice, they were unable to reverse the engagement generated on social media in the weeks leading up to the fixture.

The cancellation of the game will have come as a disappointment to football fans who were eager to watch the future stars of Wales and Scotland battle it out on the pitch.
