The Cymru Premier was thrust into the spotlight for all the wrong reasons after Cefn Druids saw their game at Cardiff Met postponed due to a kit clash.

Druids had taken their red away kit presuming that it wouldn't clash with the home side's maroon and blue home strip.

But the officials saw things differently, and despite attempts to locate another strip the game was canned until November 23.

The news caught the attention of Soccer Saturday presenter Jeff Stelling, who couldn't believe what he was hearing, saying: "How soft are you in the League of Wales. Get your shirts off and get that game on."

Nomads' official Twitter account also joined in on sticking the boot into their top-flight rivals by asking Sunday's opponents Penybont if they had "packed the right kit?"

Druids manager Huw Griffiths described the situation as "bitterly disappointing and annoying" after revealing that ever effort was made to get the game played as scheduled.

Druids headed to the capital believing that there would be no issue with them wearing their red kit.

But with less than 30 minutes to kick-off the visitors were told that the kits were too similar - Llanelli had worn red against Cardiff Met last season - and another one would have to be found.

A search through the university sports department came to nothing, while Met's away strip was apparently in manager Christian Edwards' house.

A 3pm deadline to start the game due to events on the pitch later that evening prevented the away kit from being retrieved, while the idea of couriering over a strip from Cardiff City was shelved given the time constraints.

It left both sides with no other option but to put the game back nearly two months.

Griffiths said: "We were told that as long as we could find a kit that had numbers on the back then we could play.

"But the 3pm deadline meant that we couldn't find anything and there was nothing available in the old University of Wales.

"I showed the officials a picture of Llanelli playing in red against Cardiff Met last season, but the referee wasn't happy that he could differentiate between the teams if a quick decision had to be made in the game.

"We are bitterly disappointed and annoyed and what happened shouldn't happen at this level."

General manager Gwyn Derfel confirmed that the postponement would be discussed at the National Leagues board on Monday.

Druids issued an official statement ahead of any further inquiry, that read: "Cefn Druids AFC are disappointed with the outcome of today's postponement versus Cardiff Met.

"Prior to the fixture, the club had communicated, in all good faith, with all relevant parties, as required.

"There was no intimation of a potential colour clash until the kit inspection by match officials at Cyncoed."
