Seems a little strange that Parramore website doesnt say anything about their match being re-arranged to this saturday.
I suspect its more than likely that they simply refusing to cancel the match vs Scarborough thats probably going to be their biggest gate of the season and the FA Cup game was never ever going to be given presedence.
Parramore are not re-arranging the Scarborough fixture to this Saturday, it is remaining next Saturday (8th Sept). Parramore are at home to Glasshoughton Welfare in the FA Vase tomorrow night (and we are at home to SPS on Saturday) so moving the Scarborough game forward a week to this Saturday was not an option for them.
I was told that as we are the higher placed team FA rules state that where there is a clash of fixtures then we get priority even though it is Parramore's ground. Hence why we are at home on Saturday and Parramore have moved their FA Vase game to Friday night.
As you stated in your original posting BP I was a little surprised the clubhouse was booked for a wedding on a Saturday during the football season when it was almost certain either Parramore or ourselves would have a home game. Also don't know why we did not hear about it earlier. Let's just hope we get our own home ground sometime in the near future!
