PRESTWICH FC manager Mike Kosub admits growing frustration at the bad weather as three recent signings prepare to leave the club after barely kicking a ball.

Last Saturday's match at Oldham Hulmeians was called off, the Lancashire Amateur League outfit's third straight postponement.

In fact, Kosub's side, who are fourth in Division One, have fulfilled just three fixtures since the start of November.

And Kosub confirmed the glut of postponements could not have come at a worse time for star recruits Leandro Parrella, Quentin Jacob and Matthew Struminski, who joined during brief stays in the area.

“We have had three players here who have all played at a very high level, and they’ve barely been able to get on the pitch,” Kosub said.

“We’ve got a Brit that’s been living and working in America, who’s going back soon, a guy who’s played in Serie B (in Italy), and a young lad from Belgium.

“They have been turning up to training then the game gets called off, it’s soul-destroying.”

The team share their ground with Prestwich Cricket Club, and with the cricket season looming the need to fulfil fixtures could not be more pressing.

With several key players having cricket commitments, Kosub could be left with a depleted side in April and May.

“It’s very frustrating – we won’t have several of our better players at the back end of the season, so the weather has messed us up big time,” he added.
