As previously stated, the Club is very sorry for the cancellation of todays’ fixture but this was beyond our control.
The Club Officials and Volunteers worked tirelessly to enable the fixture to go ahead with heat blowers on all night with our groundsman Simon working throughout the night and actually sleeping at the ground.
Simon and Dane and John worked from early morning and were later joined by Pat and some volunteers in an effort to secure the fixture.
At 10.00am an independent Referee inspection passed the pitch as playable and efforts continued with Pat, Steve and more volunteers to spread salt and grit to ensure the ground was safe for the fans.
What disappointment then when the match official arrived at just before 2pm and declared the pitch unplayable in parts and despite efforts from both teams and officials the match Referee refused to sanction the playing of the game.
Once again we apologise for the inconvenience to everyone concerned and hope you will understand that the Club made every effort possible to fulfil the fixture.
