I AM sure the supporters of Salisbury City FC will join me in expressing their gratitude to the players of Shrewton who, at very short notice, stepped up to provide the Whites with a friendly match and a worthwhile training opportunity.

Not too friendly were the actions of Wiltshire FA who, I have come to understand, ordered that Forest Green Rovers were not to play Salisbury due to ongoing off-field issues.

Wiltshire FA are clearly no friends to Salisbury City FC and have questions to answer, big time.
