"The club would like to apologise to all supporters for the late cancellation of this game, the decision that has been made is totally out of our control.

"The chairman is working hard at the moment with regards to re-arranging another game on the same evening, with another club on tour in the UK, and will let supporters know via our website once we have details confirmed."
