Datchworth have progressed to the next round of the National Cup after the late withdrawal of Ipswich on Friday morning.
Although pleased to be in the next round, new captain Danny Sheridan said: "It would have been nice to have played the fixture, we were on a bit of a high coming into the new season and everyone is looking forward to success this year. I just hope this doesn't mean we lose momentum!
"We have a good squad for this year; a lot of the youngsters blooded last season have really come on over the summer."
Sheridan himself started his Datchworth career in the juniors, had a brief spell playing football, and then returned to Datchworth in 2003.
