FANS were left fuming after Newport County's quarter-final clash with Leicester City U'21s was called off by the referee just twenty minutes before kick-off. 

Mike Flynn's side were set to take on the Foxes in the Trophy quarter final.

Match officials deemed that the playing surface at Rodney Parade was unplayable. 

And fans took to social media to voice their displeasure. 

Dan O'Sullivan labelled the Trophy a "Mickey Mouse competiton" but said the decision was "poor by County".

One person on social media labelled the incident "embarrassing".

And another said he was "literally around the corner" and rushed home from work early to get to the game in time. 

Lots of County fans were quick to point out - rightly so - that the referee makes the decision, not the club. 

Rhys Wybrant said: "It's not the clubs fault the ref called it off not the club!"

South Wales Argus:

Writing on Facebook, Claire Brazel said she was already there. 

"Walked through the gates to be greeted by a steward shouting 'games off, match postponed'.

"Surely the frost didn’t appear out of the blue, pitch should have been assessed earlier on especially with it being a 7pm kick off.

"Not fair on the fans."

And Neil Rees call it a "shambles".
