The fuel crisis that has hit the country because of the senseless panic buying of petrol from the masses looks as though it could have an effect on the footballing community.
Queues have been forming at petrol stations for the last few days, with many running out of fuel supplies and being forced to close.
It’s an untenable situation for the government and one that can’t be allowed to continue.
Incredibly, it’s already seen football matches being called off with club’s fearing that they’ll not being able to acquire enough petrol or diesel for their team buses.
Non-League Hornchurch released a statement detailing an agreement between them and the team that they were due to play on Tuesday night, Folkestone Invicta.

Our game tomorrow night against @FIFC has been postponed due to the ongoing fuel crisis.

If there’s no immediate resolution to the problem, there could be a farcical situation of games being called off at the weekend.
Surely this is a good enough reason for the panic buying to stop.
