Dandy Town have won their call to have their rescheduled Charity Cup match against Devonshire Cougars moved from Devonshire Rec. to a neutral venue.The game had been due to be held at BAA Field on Saturday, September 18, but was rescheduled for tonight at the Rec. because of Hurricane Igor.However, yesterday the Bermuda Football Association (BFA) confirmed that the Charity Cup had been switched back to BAA Field and would be played on Sunday after Western Stars Sports Club argued Cougars would have an unfair home field advantage at the Rec."As a result of concerns expressed by Western Stars Sports Club about the venue; the executive committee has decided to revert to playing the Charity Cup on a neutral venue," read the BFA statement."Therefore the game will now be played at BAA at 1 p.m."We apologise for any inconvenience but under these circumstances it is unavoidable."Dandy Town vice-president, Michael Weeks, said he was satisfied the matter had now been resolved."The executive felt it would be unfair advantage to play the game at Devonshire Rec., the home of Devonshire Cougars," he said."A letter was sent to the BFA expressing those concerns and we're delighted they have accommodated us and moved the game to a neutral venue."I didn't think there was much foresight to playing the game Devonshire Rec., it didn't make any sense."BAA Field had been due to stage Sunday's Dudley Eve double-header with PHC playing Boulevard Blazers, and North Village Rams taking on Somerset Eagles.In order to accommodate the Charity Cup game, the Village and Eagles clash has been postponed until a later date.The Charity Cup kicks off at 1p.m., while PHC against Boulevard will start at 3 p.m.
