Wessex League champions Blackfield and Langley pulled out of last night's friendly at the Avenue Stadium, claiming they couldn't raise a team.

That's days after Magpies match with Exeter City was cancelled because the pitch wasn't ready.

Simkin was planning to field two seperate teams in the games to have a good look at his squad under match conditions.
